Waterstones Says

Telling the nativity through the eyes of one little girl and her donkey, The Christmas Story is an enduring seasonal classic. Now brought to life afresh with beautiful new cover design.

'Once, a long time ago, in a town called Nazareth, a little donkey was born.' As the wonderful events of the Nativity unfold, Brian Wildsmith tells of the journey of a little girl and a donkey to Bethlehem. It is their perspective on the Christmas story that gives the book such an intimate, innocent and child-centred appeal. This classic story from one of our most internationally acclaimed picture-book writers and artists has deservedly become an enduring favourite with children at Christmas time. Now, a stunning new cover design will delight a whole new generation of young Wildsmith fans.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Elaborately illustrated with magnificent gold illuminations, this gentle version of the Nativity captures all the wonder of the birth of Jesus. * Practical Parenting *
. . . a wonderful retelling of the Nativity from one of the UK's most acclaimed picture-book writers and illustrators. First published over 20 years ago, the child-centred perspective offers a great introduction to Christmas events and traditions. * The School Run *
The beautiful illustrations ... are evocative in a quite different way and they are equally skilful in bringing the story of the birth of Jesus to life. * Julia Eccleshare, The Guardian online *
