This book, published in 1995 has been a family Christmas favorite since we received it.
It has exceptionally beautiful pictures to go along with the touching and wonderful text.
The story is about a cranky widower who takes on a wood carving job, and how it changes him for the better, because of local widow her son that order a new manger scene. The true meaning of Christmas shines through this book, with a love story on the side, and some gentle humor. Throughout the tale there is a wonderful, gentle explanation of Christmas.

Wonderful illustrations are the perfect complement to this unique Christmas story

This is not a religious Christmas book, nor is it without tragedy (though there is a happy ending). The story does feel real, though, and is beautifully - almost lyrically told. The illustrations are top notch and really bring the story to life of the gloomy woodcarver and the boy who helped his spirit heal.
