Once upon a time, three kings came out of a distant land and followed a star to a little known town across the desert. They brought with them gold, frankincense and myrrh, and presents for a newborn child. But there was another king who set out on the long and difficult journey - the fourth king. Unlike the others he arrived too late and empty handed...This heartwarming fable is not just the story of the other wise man (and his camel), it is also a tale to remind us of the true meaning of Christmas.

Kindergarten-Grade 2–This long and rambling first-person narrative follows the travels of King Mazzel and his faithful camel, Chamberlin, as they attempt to join the Wise Men on their way to Bethlehem. Mazzel is waylaid by various people in need; helping them, he fails to arrive in time to meet the newborn child, but his Christ-like good deeds earn him happiness. The colorful cartoon art has a Seussian look, which adds to the book's child appeal, but is at odds with its serious message.–Susan Patron, Los Angeles Public Library
