Every year, a huge Norway spruce, twenty metres and more in height, is erected in Trafalgar Square. Many who see it must take it for granted, assuming it, like so many others, is merely marking the arrival of winter and Christmas festivities. The London tree, however, tells us the story of a very remarkable King, of the brave, indomitable people of Norway, and of the British people' s fortitude during the second world war. Richly illustrated, The King and the Christmas is a warm Christmas fable of human courage and friendship between nations; a delightful Christmas cracker for all of us, young and old, at Christmastime.
' An unlikely hero has a master storyteller to tell his tale. The King and the Christmas Tree is a poignant Christmas treat. ' -- Lucy Worsley ' Reads like a thriller; a tale of human courage and resistance' -- Lady Antonia Fraser I loved this book, not read without shedding a tear, reminding us that true democracy goes hand-in-hand with true kingship. -- Roy Strong
