Jesus's Christmas Party by Nicholas Allan

Is there really any point telling you about this book? You've all seen it, read it, treasured it, yes? I hope so, because it's one of our all-time favourites.

I'm not religious at all, but I adore this book. It's the nativity story, but told from the point of view of the innkeeper who just wants a good night's sleep and is constantly woken by knocking at the door.

The story is simple and sweet, the illustrations are adorable and we never get tired of reading it, even though it's always the first Christmas book we pull out.



  1. A fantastic book and well loved with the children at school too.

  2. Thank you for the recommendation, Keris; I got this out from the library last night and both kids loved it. So funny and sweet.
