Carol of the Brown King

Carol of the Brown King

Written by: Langston Hughes , Illustrations by: Ashley Bryan


The Wonder of Christmas never ceases.  Each year the holiday comes and its story seems fresh and new.  The ways of telling about the very first Christmas are as many and as varied as the stars in the sky.  And so it was for Langston Hughes, who recounted those long ago events in six different ways-in five poems he wrote and in one he translated from the Spanish.  In this memorable book, these six poems are simply and movingly illustrated by Ashley Bryan.  That Christmas is for everyone-young and old, black and white, rich and poor-has never been clearly shown.
