It is Christmas Eve and an old woman living in poverty goes to the town with her accordion to earn money. Forced to sell her instrument, she is robbed on the way home - and so is the church box - but her own good deeds mean that she reaps the benefit of a reward from them and a Christmas surprise.

Review:

"This is a Christmas miracle like no other, with such richness in image and story that children will return to it again and again" (Booklist, starred review).

"Without a doubt the most original Christmas book of the year not the least because of its surprising yet, in context, fitting combination of the devout and the surreal."--The Horn Book, starred review

"The story is sweet, simple and wordless. The illustrations are intricate enough to warrant reading this one over and over."--American Bookseller

..".an upbeat story to treasure for this and many Christmases to come."--School Library Journal

"In a series of meticulously crafted panels, Collington poignantly relates the wordless story of a penniless old woman whose good turn is rewarded-she rescues the village church's nativity scene from a vandal-when the figurines come to life and save her."-Publishers Weekly, Starred

From the Hardcover edition.
