A young angel and a appealingly illustrated animal together witness the events of the birth of Jesus. A little lamb sees the crowds on their way to Bethlehem, and wants to join in the fun himself. Off he sets on the road to Bethlehem, without his shepherd boy, but soon becomes lost!
He is saved by a watching angel who leads him to the stable where he finally meets the baby Jesus and is reunited with his shepherd. Charming illustrations from Red House Children's Book Award-shortlisted Kristina Stephenson make this an endearing read to share during the run-up to Christmas, looking at the familiar story from a new angle.
