Synopsis

Room for a Little One by Martin Waddell

One cold winter's night, in his stable, Kind Ox welcomes animals looking for warmth and shelter with the call, 'Come inside. There's always room for a little one here.' Then Tired Donkey arrives, led by Joseph and carrying Mary on his back. Kind Ox calls to Tired Donkey, 'Come inside. There's always room for a little one here'. And later that night, in the light of the stable, the animals welcome Jesus to the world. Martin Waddell's beautiful retelling of the Nativity story is exquisitely illustrated by Jason Cockcroft.

About the Author

Martin Waddell

As a child

I've been blown up, buried alive and had cancer as an adult, and survived all these experiences, so I'm a very lucky man. I live where I lived as a child, and nearly all my stories come from things that have happened to me here, at the foot of the Mountain of Mourne.

As an artist
I work in an old stone barn beside my home, and dream my stories in the garden and on long walks on the beach in front of my house. I never write anywhere else. This is where I belong.

I can wiggle my ears. I am a very noisy tennis player. I had a cat that could open doors. My dog hears my stories before I write them. I scored a hat trick on my debut in adult football, but wound up as a goalkeeper. I used to run a junk stall. I like bringing up egg-shaped stones from the beach to my garden. I like apple tarts. I hate onions. I’m a happy man
