This is a fantastic book about the first Christmas. It is told from the perspective of a young kitten and his mother who are visited by animals following a star - a star that is burning brighter than any others. Soon mother and kitten are following also, and they discover a baby in a manger surrounded by animals with the bright star shining down upon him. A unique telling of a story most of us are familiar with. It is a great story excellently illustrated.
