5.0 out of 5 stars Grumpy inn-keeper's view of the nativity 20 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
A look at the Christmas story throught the eyes of a grumpy inn keeper who loses out on a lot of sleep. My kids LOVE this book, and 'ROUND THE BACK!' has become a catchphrase in our family. The book is neither pious nor irreverent, but tells the nativity story in a way kids find fun. Great stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely wonderful! 17 Nov 2003
Format:Paperback
I have used this book in my classroom for several years. The children BEG to have it read on a daily basis. It adds an element of reality to an otherwise very solemn event in a comical yet engaging manner. Parents often ask me what book am I reading because their children come home retelling it. My only concern is that it is no longer available here in the States. If you don't have it, you should plan to make it part of your Christmas collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gem! 8 Aug 2006
By Mmr
Format:Paperback
This is one of those books that should be on all children's bookshelves - 'round the back' is now a family catchphrase. A wonderful, wonderful little book. I challenge anyone to read this aloud and not get caught up in the excitement!

Jesus' arrival - so far as the inn keeper is concerned - is just one more thing when he longs to go to sleep. People interrupt him every time he drops off; the door-knocker never stops; first its shepherds, then its... well you know the story! but you have never heard it told like this.
and at the end? well there is a really brilliant surprise ending.
oh and the drawings are just cool. Well our children think they are, and we just love reading it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Some humor for Christmas 10 Dec 2001
Format:Paperback
THis book is adored by my kids, even out of Xmas. It adds some humor to the way in which the arrival of Mary and Joseph is unwelcome by the innkeeper. He just can't get to sleep until...well, have a laugh!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gentle, Different, easy to follow nativity Story 22 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Charming, different interpretation of the nativity ideal for very young children to get some idea of what Christmas is about - without having to go into detail that they may not understand.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best christmas stories ever. 18 Oct 1998
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This book is one of the real highlights of our Christmas reading. It looks at Christmas from the inn keeper's view. Although this is pure speculation, it is very funny. It has become one of our party pieces for Christmas, with the girls playing the part of inn keepers. This is a must for children from 2 to 80.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 26 Nov 2008
By Dinky VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
...in the way it puts a different slant on the story of Jesus's birth. Yes, He was the Saviour. Yes, He was God made man. Yes, His birth belied His divine origins, etc. etc. "Jesus' Christmas Party" turns the story around by looking at it from the innkeeper's -- heretofore very much a minor character -- perspective and makes it rather funny and, in the process, rather magical and human at the same time without trivializing it. The illustrations, as all good illustrations will, enhance and enliven the words beautifully. This remains one of my favourite books. I got it years ago from a cheap bookshop and my daughter -- then six or so? -- and my husband and I loved it so much that I bought more copies and gave it to friends and relatives that I especially liked. The Mini Treasures edition makes it just the right size for little hands and is also perfect for packing in your purse for travelling and posting. I posted my last copy today to a friend living in America who had a baby this year and have just realized that I may not have a copy myself. Panic! Good thing Amazon's got it, whew.
