Wondrous Adaptation of the Well-Loved Christmas Carol

Review of the e-book from NetGalley

"Good King Wencesles"
As read by Jane Seymour with illustrations by Omar Rayyan
Written for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir by David T. Warner
Original song lyrics by John Mason Neale

Since "Good King Wenceslas" is one of my most favorite Christmas carols, I happily jumped at the chance to read and review the e-book version of the newly-released short-story and CD combination that incorporates narrative storytelling, quotations from the song, and snippets of medieval history amidst some of the most gorgeous hibernal landscapes I have seen in quite a while. I plan on finding and purchasing the hard copy version of this item because I believe hearing Jane Seymour read the text and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir sing the lyrics will be well-worth the money, as well as being able to share the picture-book with my son and my classroom for many Christmases to come.
