Little Owl and the Christmas Star

By Mary Murphy
Illustrated by Mary Murphy

A joyous version of the nativity story told by a curious little owl.

It is a silent night and Little Owl is sitting in their tree with a waiting feeling, when a star sparkles along. "Come with me," says the star, and Little Owl follows, as do three men on camels and shepherds with their sheep. They soon find themselves part of the happiest scene on Earth. Perfect for small hands, this sturdy board book features a sparkly gold starburst foil effect on the cover and a triumphant last page!

  • Mary has refreshed her artwork for this book with a brand new Christmassy palette.
  • With a spectacular, Christmassy final spread with a glimmering gold-foiled star.
  • "Typically gorgeous illustrations ... a real Christmas treat." Angels & Urchins
