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!
