Description

This is the exciting story of Ishmael, a shepherd and handsome boy of thirteen who knows how to be gentle and kind, but is not afraid of putting up a fight to protect his sheep. Along with the other shepherds in his family and their flocks, he arrives in Bethlehem. Crowds are pouring into the town to obey the command of Emperor Augustus: he has ordered a census to count all the people in the world. Ishmael is worried. Shepherds are not always welcome in the villages. What would happen in Bethlehem? A beautiful and moving Christmas story about peace and reconciliation, brilliantly illustrated. Ishmael is about to discover friendship and peace of heart through the birth of Christ. What if all the children of the world were to come and kneel before the baby Jesus, and receive that same deep love and peace?show more
