Through the Animals Eyes: A Story of the First Christmas

by

Through the Animals Eyes: A Story of the First Christmas Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From dogs watching over the shepherds’ flocks when angels appear, to a charmed cobra performing in Herod’s court as the king tries to deceive the wise men, Wormell’s trademark animal imagery brings a new perspective to the story of the first Christmas.

Review:

"Wormell's (Teeth, Tails, & Tentacles) arresting woodcuts depict an ark-load of animals that witness elements of the journey to Bethlehem made by Joseph and Mary and their subsequent flight to Egypt. The dramatic, exquisitely crafted artwork brings a certain gravitas to the story of the first Christmas, though this abbreviated interpretation has a truncated tone that never fully captures the warmth and joy of the subject matter. As an added point of interest, a substantial illustrated glossary at book's end identifies each beast and its relevance to biblical times. Ages 4-8." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
