Synopsis

The Three Wise Men A Christmas Story by Loek Koopmans

Long, long ago, a very special star appeared in the night sky. It shone more brightly than all the other stars. Three wise men called Melchior, Caspar and Balthasar gazed at the star in wonder. They had never seen anything like it before. In this beautifully illustrated book for young children, the three Kings decide to journey west, following the star to a very special destination. Loek Koopmans' retelling of one part of the Christmas story is full of life and character, as well as mystery and wonder.

Reviews

'[T]he trajectory and tone are just right for the youngest audience, and the humble pictures, more sunny than starlit, depict the Magi as sweet old souls.'

'The Three Wise Men has beautiful, warm and gentle illustrations.'

'This is of course a well-known story, but I liked this different perspective and also the soft tones of the beautiful illustrations.'
