Once, in Bethlehem, a special gift was given.

Share the story at the heart of Christmas in this beautifully illustrated retelling - the story of Mary and Joseph, shepherds and angels, wise men following a star, a humble stable, and a special newborn baby cradled in a manger.

Mary Joslin is married and has 3 grown up children. She began writing when her own children were still young and has since written books that have been published throughout the world. For Lion, these include: Our Father, The Tale of the Heaven Tree, Do the Angels Watch Close By?, The Merchant Enticed by the Pearl of Great Price and The Story of the Cross.

|Kristina Swarner decided to become an artist at the age of 3, and has been drawing ever since. Since graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design, she has created award-winning illustrations for books, greeting cards, magazines, wine labels, CD covers, and theatre posters. Her work has been exhibited internationally, including Eric Carle Museum and the Society of Illustrators.
