Like many other birds, Rejoice the Robin can be spotted up in treetops asserting his identity, and down on the ground foraging for fragments of food. But it can't really be said that Rejoice is like most other birds. In fact, Rejoice isn't like any other bird. . . . He is indeed a most unusual robin - a bird blessed with a special song to sing. In this tuneful tale, we encounter a most unusual robin who sings to celebrate life - life in all its fullness. With a love of history, he looks for the heroes of the past who have something to say to help us today, and he sings to enlighten us with their stories; he sings so that the present may listen to the past and be wise in the future. Journey with Rejoice in London on Christmas Eve, as he seeks to find the Flamesong - a song which the robin will sing in the morning light of Christmas Day, a song full of deep truth that tells the greatest story of all.
