'So, long after the star had set, after the angels had roosted,
after the shepherds had hurried back to their sheep,
there was one person still awake in a dark stable,
watching over a sleeping child.'
Complemented by Fabian Negrin's atmospheric illustrations, this picture book is destined to become a classic.
