Synopsis

Christmas in the Barn by Margaret Wise Brown

From the bestselling author of classics like Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny comes a Christmas story sure to delight generations of new readers, reillustrated in 2016 by the beloved Llama Llama creator, Anna Dewdney. In this reissued edition by Margaret Wise Brown, Christmas in the Barn tells a childlike interpretation of the Nativity story with all-new full-color illustrations from New York Times bestselling illustrator Anna Dewdney, creator of the Llama Llama series. Brown's tender, lyrical account of the Nativity has been reissued...with illustrations that expand the succinct text, giving a quiet sense of grandeur while at the same time making readers feel a part of the events. A lovely book for a new generation of readers, says School Library Journal.

Reviews

Dewdney's striking, mixed-media paintings have a loose, post-impressionistic flavor...Brown's short, rhyming text is accessible and satisfying, with clever inclusions of well-known phrases from traditional Christmas carols. -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
