Synopsis

The Christmas Show by Rebecca Patterson

It's Christmas and the children have been practising very hard for their nativity play. The narrators are word-perfect, the Important Angel has brushed her hair and the audience are in their seats. But when the curtain rises, no one's expecting a spare shepherd to steal the show ... A bright, bold, brilliantly observed book that's full of festive fun -- with a gorgeously glittery cover that makes it the perfect stocking filler!

Reviews

A wonderfully comic account of a school nativity play. You would have to be clinically depressed not to laugh at this affectionate hatchet job. * The Independent * We've really enjoyed reading The Christmas Show together, it's funny, you can easily relate to the characters. It's a perfect story for this time of year * over40andamumtoone.com *

About the Author

Rebecca grew up in Bolton, and first studied Fashion. After graduating, she worked at an assortment of jobs, including being an classroom assistant in a primary school, while sending out manuscripts for picture books. Once her own children had started school, Rebecca began an MA in Children's Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art and had her first picture books commissioned at the end of the course, including THE DEEP END (published by Macmillan) and MY BIG SHOUTING DAY. Rebecca's work is inspired by her own childhood and her children's lives, with stories often starting as games or something made up in the back of a car to amuse a child. She lives in Cambridge.
