Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! An amazing book. Wildsmith tells the story of the birth of Jesus Christ from the perspective of a little donkey who accompanies Joseph and Mary on their journey to Bethlehem. Each portion of the journey is accompanied by visually stunning art work that has an almost mystical flavour to it. A pure to delight to read and take in. Also take a look at his other book on Easter.
