"When an angel summons a group of shepherds and kings to a distant Bethlehem stable, the travelers cross paths with others whose missions are less glamorous. . . . These unsung heroes have also received orders from the angels, to tend the water, fish, bread and wine that Jesus will need in years to come . . . this lyrical picture book is illuminated by Wensell's radiant watercolors." (Publishers Weekly) "A carefully composed translation and adaptation of a German nativity story. . . . The telling is formal and folkloric in structure, with a reverent, Biblical tone. The dramatic full-page watercolor illustrations use light to great effect. . . . A treasure for quiet family sharing." (chool Library Journal)
