From the Author:
The Three Wise Camels began as a homemade book in 1990 for my family and friends. It was cheaper than buying Christmas presents. The initial 'print run' was about 50 copies. The two major differences between the original book and the final product 24 years later are:
- The camel's went from 'stick figure' camels to 'cartoon' camels.
- The removal of the Hubble Telescope and Barbara Thiering references.
The Three Wise Camels approached a number of publishers. The best rejection comment was, 'I love the story but it is too Christian for the general market but not Christian enough for the Christian market.'
The Camels have shared their amazing adventures at many Christmas church services over the last 20 years. They always receive a warm welcome. Three times I've told the story at our annual Carols service in Whitmore square which has a memorial to the Afghan Camel drivers. Australia's oldest mosque built by the Afghanis is a street away. It is fun telling the story and then wrapping the Afghanis and Muslims into our Christmas celebrations.
'Through the war zone' was first illustration drawn during the Iraqi occupation of Kuwait. I find it devastating what has happened since. I hope people pray this page. The flying Camel is a 'Sopwith Camel'. Only Snoopy fans get the joke.
I've wondered if while fun, whether the story had enough weight. But everyone loves them and it is easy to encourage people to join the Camels in seeking out Jesus. The most common question has been, "Where do I buy the book?"
