How many miles to Bethlehem?

How many miles to Bethlehem?

Crossley-Holland, Kevin; Malone, Peter

An innkeeper, an ox and a donkey, shepherds, wise men, angels, a star, Herod, Mary and Jesus himself all speak their part in this resonant and original retelling of the Nativity story. Set in the Middle East and filled with visual references to the place and time, the poetic text marries beautifully with the exquisite jewel-coloured paintings of Peter Malone
