“I bring you news of great joy. For tonight, in Bethlehem, a child has been born, a savior who is Christ the Lord.” When the shepherds are invited to follow the star to visit the child, one young boy is told to stay and mind the flock. But the Angel Gabriel returns for him, taking the boy on a magical, memorable flight to be the first to witness the Christmas miracle. With a gently wry narration by Michael Morpurgo and expressive illustrations by the extraordinary Quentin Blake, this inviting, uplifting story is destined to become a holiday tradition.
Michael Morpurgo has written more than 120 books. His most well-known work, War Horse, was adapted into a multi-Oscar nominated film. Michael Foreman has won the Kate Greenaway Medal two times and has been the UK nominee for the Hans Christian Andersen Award twice.
