The Christmas Story An Exquisite Pop-Up Retelling by Robert Sabuda


The Christmas Story An Exquisite Pop-Up Retelling by Robert Sabuda

The Nativity is brought to life by master pop-up artist Robert Sabuda in six gorgeously imagined 3-D scenes, making this a Christmas gift book to treasure. Long ago, in a stable in Bethlehem, a baby was born on a bright and starry night. This child was the Son of God and he would be the saviour of all mankind. The wondrous story of the birth of Jesus - born in a stable, laid in a manger, visited by shepherds and the three wise men - is exquisitely imagined by pop-up artist Robert Sabuda in six scenes. Glinting with touches of gold and pearlescent foil, The Christmas Story is a visual delight and a book for whole family to treasure at Christmas.
