A classic among Christmas books, says Heinemann, and the claim seems justified. The words of the King James Version of the Bible has been used to tell the story of the Nativity. Printed in five colours including gold, the illustrations are in silhouette, giving it a fairytale quality, and with exquisite decoration of scrolls and leaves the effect is sumptuous.

Jennifer Taylor - The Bookseller, 15th September, 1984

This timeless book works on all levels. Children and adults alike will love the illustrations – each finding different joys in them. Young readers can tackle something a bit more elevated than the standard educational texts; parents will enjoy reading it aloud to their children.
