The Stable Rat, and Other Christmas PoemsBook - 2001

In these startlingly powerful poems, Julia Cunningham captures the mystery and magic of the Nativity for readers of every age. And Anita Lobel's magnificent paintings and brilliant iconography give each poem a setting that is at once personal and universal.
