  • The Good King By Dale R. Long Meg Simmons The Good King, an illustrated Christmas story, is a retelling of John Mason Neale s Christmas carol, Good King Wenceslas It is a story of betrayal and faith, of endings and new beginnings and, along the way, a handful of Christmas miracles and a few surprises This story fills in the blanks left by the carol, as the King s page recounts the last days of King Wenceslas.

    This short story should become a new Christmas classic for the whole family A Christmas miracle tied to a classic carol Good King Wenceslas with a delightful twist at the end for the reader who is paying attention Perfect for reading aloud by fireside on a December evening.

    This wonderful story will become a tradition in my house along side Twas The Night Before Christmas, the family curled in front of the fire in our pyjamas Well written with a very neat realization at the end Thank you, Dale R Long for capturing the true meaning of Christmas.

    July was the perfect time for me to read this story My Christmas spirit isn t overwhelmed by continuous marketing and packaging of Christmas like it is from October December A lovely story but there wasn t enough of it I want to hear I finished, wishing it were 300 pages.
