'Murray Watts has written a modern classic. With simple words in fine phrases he paints the stories as vividly as Helen Cann illustrates them. Murray Watts projects onto the screen of a child's imagination indelible pictures of the greatest story ever told.' -- Rt Rev James Jones, Bishop of Liverpool
