5.0 out of 5 stars A spiritual surprise and delight, 17 Oct 2009
This review is from: The Lion, The Unicorn and Me (Hardcover)
I was surprised and delighted by The Lion, the Unicorn and Me. For someone who is known for having had a difficult relationship with Christianity Jeanette Winterson has written a deeply spiritual and moving nativity story. The extraordinary idea of the incarnation is breathed throughout this fable. It is telling us something totally real and very wonderful. Our earth was visited and it makes all the difference. Rosalind MacCurrach, a newcomer, has illuminated the story with light and humour. Her glorious illustrations are very moving. I was impressed, for example, by the idea of placing the angel and the shepherds in a vast amphitheatre of the creation, the whole world. So right! This little book will delight children and all ages and be treasured for years.
