Synopsis

The Nativity Story by Geraldine McCaughrean

Geraldine McCaughrean's breathtakingly evocative prose brings new life to the familiar stories. This sumptuous take on the classic Nativity story, with enduring prose and opulent, stylish illustrations, is a wonderful family keepsake and a delight to read alone or aloud in homes, schools and churches. Sophy Williams - twice highly commended for the Reader's Digest Young Illustrators Award - is celebrated for her sensitive illustrations, which perfectly match Geraldine's sophisticated prose. Beautifully presented with a foil-effect dust jacket, this will be a Christmas book to treasure.

Anne Fine on Geraldine McCaughrean:

'I reckon Geraldine McCaughrean knocks the socks off every other children's writer today. Everything she does is different and everything works – look at her list of prizes. She must write in tremendous bursts. Some years, she's so prolific the rest of us start joking that the fairies come in at night to do her work for her. Then she'll go quiet, so unlike all those writers who are persuaded by their publishers to come up with something every year, no matter how tired or drab. If Geraldine has nothing fresh to write, she doesn't write it.' (The Guardian)
