With bold, eye-catching graphics, glittering foil, and a gentle text, Mary Murphy retells an age-old Christmas story for the youngest of children.

It was a silent night.
I sat in my tree,
with a waiting feeling.

On a silent night, a star beckons to Little Owl, and he follows. He flies by three men on camels, plodding through sand and watching the sky. He flies above hills where shepherds keep watch over sheep, who watch too. And finally, in a distant manger, he finds a man, a woman, and the happiest baby - and joy that lights the world.
