Light, entertaining read to get into the Christmas spirit
on 23 December 2010
This is a short book which reminds the reader of the story behind Christmas. Written in a similar manner to Sophie's World, in a story within a story format, it tells of a young Norwegian girl you travels to Bethlehem back through time during her journey on a pilgrimage to the birth of Christ collecting the various characters (shepherds, sheep, wise men and angels) as she travels. It is written for younger readers as a fairy story with an educational purpose. A light and entertaining read designed primarily for younger readers. A clever idea but it does lack the depth of Sophie's World, which was an excellent book.
