'Once, a long time ago, in a town called Nazareth, a little donkey was born.'
As the wonderful events of the Nativity unfold, Brian Wildsmith tells of the journey of a little girl and a donkey to Bethlehem.
It is their perspective on the Christmas story that gives the book such an intimate, innocent and child-centred appeal.
This classic story from one of our most internationally acclaimed picture-book writers and artists has deservedly become an enduring favourite with children at Christmas time.
Now, a stunning new cover design will delight a whole new generation of young Wildsmith fans.
