This book presents 10 stories retelling the events surrounding the birth of Jesus, told from different characters' points of view : the donkey who carries Mary to Bethlehem taking pride in his job; the caring Innkeeper's wife who notices that Mary needs a bit of comfort; and even the choir of angels whose rehearsal is intereruppted due to an important and sudden concert they must give! Following the Gospel stories, storyteller John Goodwin gives the familiar Christmas stories a refreshing twist, whilst Richard Johnson adds his lively and warm illustrations to the show to shine a light on the Christmas message. Stories are: Mary and the Angel; Joseph's Dream; The Journey to Bethlehem; No Room at the Inn; The Angels; The Young Shepherd; King Herod and the Three Wise Men; The Warning Dream; Saving the Baby and The First Christmas Tree.
