This book was helerious in fact amazing.
My favourite bit was when Mary dropped the baby Jesus because it was like the way it paused then she just dropped him Sadly,as my daughter found out after she had bought a copy as a christmas present for my partner, this is no than a collection of christmas themed stories culled from Gervase Finn s other books and whilst still amusing is not worth buying if you have his other books.
