Description
This perfectly angelic and perfectly charming Christmas story offers a creative twist on the classic tale of the nativity, from the #1 "New York Times "bestselling creators of "Someday."
The angels are aflutter: a baby is soon to be born One small angel can tell this baby is especially special by the way the other angels are dashing and fussing about. And holy moly, are their presents extraordinary. The little angel wants to give a present too, but, what could she possibly offer that is as worthy as the others gifts?
At a loss for original ideas, she peeks over the side of her platform and spies something going on in the desert a caravan of kings on camels, lost in the dark. And suddenly she knows she most do something, and does the only thing she can. Because the greatest gift of all? It can t be wrapped. It can t be bought. It can only be selflessly, joyfully given. And it ends up being the perfect gift for that little baby the shiningest gift at all.
