From Kipper creator Mick Inkpen and award-winning illustrator Nick Butterworth, this warm-hearted book celebrates the timeless tradition of school nativity plays. Sam and his sister can’t wait for the Christmas play! Tracy is an angel, and she feels so beautiful in her halo that she wishes she had a magic wand as well. Animals, shepherds, wise men and Mary and Joseph are all flocking onto the stage. The audience can see dozens of glowing little faces. But who will play the baby Jesus? And will it all be alright on the night?

This much-loved classic brims with familiar moments that children and teachers will recognise and cherish. Old-fashioned, gentle and true to life, it celebrates all those who perform Christmas miracles with wire coat-hangers and stripy towels!
