Little Jack Horner


“Little Jack Horner sat in the corner, Eating a Christmas pie, He put in his thumb and pulled out a plum, And said, 'What a good boy am I.'”

Some say this nursery rhyme is based on an extraordinary bit of intrigue involving the last Abbot of Glastonbury and his steward during the final days of the dissolution of the monasteries by Henry VIII of England.
