...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.
