Description

'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 presented as a beautiful gift edition which includes a nativity scene to make and display in your home during the festive season.
