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 interrupted 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.
Richard Johnson graduated with a degree in illustration from Loughborough University of Art and Design in 1999 andcurrently lives in Lincolnshire. Creating imagery for children of all ages is a particular passion of Richard's. His illustrations can be seen in many books, including Aesop's Fables, If Elephants Wore Trousers, Around the World in Eighty Tales, The Peter Pan Jigsaw Book, and My Grandpa's Amazing Inventions.
