The charming pencil and watercolour illustrations by Sophie Allsopp respectfully complement the great story, adding detail and warmth that will be appreciated by adult and child alike. This little hardback is a beautiful but very accessible presentation of the familiar nativity story which makes a lovely Christmas gift.
