Frost Fair by Carol Ann Duffy

It is a snowy London day in The Great Winter of 1683.  We follow our bold narrator as she explores ‘the town on the Thames’, a thousand tents and dancing fires lit on the frozen water with jubilant residents and lively festive revelry.  All is a fete upon the ice as she sees jugglers, dancing bears, palm readers and even a merry wedding.  Her journey leads her to meet many new companions with whom to spend a starry night upon the river, where they sleep with no inkling of who will be looking down on them in the morning light…

Carol Ann Duffy’s new Christmas poem, Frost Fair, is inspired by the fairs held on the River Thames in London as it froze over in the uncommonly cold winters of the Little Ice Age.  This delightful, moving new poem captures the inventiveness of a great city and the drama of winter.  Beautifully illustrated by David De Las Heras, Frost Fair is an irresistible read for our festive season.

Peer & Press Reviews

Duffy’s spellbinding verse, spiced with witty, wintry illustrations, recaptures a magic most of us left behind in childhood.
