This is the story of the first Christmas seen through the eyes of a young shepherd boy, Mattias, guarding flocks on the cold, dark hillsides around Bethlehem. The startling appearance of the angel bringing news of Jesus's birth and Mattias's visit to see the new baby make a night he'll always remember.
Jenni Fleetwood retells this familiar story with warmth and compassion, and Peter Melnyczuk's skilful, intricate paintings capture all the magic of the first Christmas.
