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

Christopher Wormell, Author, Christopher Wormell, Illustrator . Running Press $18.95 (50p) ISBN 978-0-7624-2669-0

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. (Oct.)
