Many were present the night Jesus Christ was born. Joseph and Mary were there, their hearts filled with peace. So were the donkey, the lamb, and the three Wise Men. Even the Star of Bethlehem looked on, casting a single heavenly beam of light upon the scene. This book gives voice to every creature present on that miraculous night and shares their twelve special prayers to the Christ Child.
Joshua Kriesberg lives in Seattle, Washington with his wife and two sons. His sons were willing listeners to countless "make-up" stories, which eventually formed the novel Horatio's One Wish. Kriesberg has written for most of his life. He has an affinity for animal characters in fiction. "Although I wrote the book for children," says Kriesberg, "the story's characters and universal themes can appeal to all ages. The story is really about how a lost and lone creature, Horatio, ventures out into an unknown world and overcomes great odds to find his way home. A journey all of us can relate to."
