You probably think you know the story of the birth of the baby Jesus, you might even have been in a nativity play: Mary, Joseph, donkey, journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem. The bit they haven’t told you about is the accidental detour that Mary and Joseph took to Chipping Bottom, a characterful village in Hampshire. That story is told in this heartwarming adventure by Jenny Pearson, who has a real gift for writing books that have you laughing out loud one minute, reaching for tissues the next.

Narrated by young Oscar who, with his five-year-old sister Molly, takes on the challenge of helping the Angel Gabriel sort out the slight hiccup he’s caused in Operation Nativity, borrowed donkeys, a runaway turkey, lots of relatives plus Mary and Joseph, Balthazar and a shepherd called Steve all have their part to play in an adventure that is fantastical but absolutely rooted in family and abiding love, which after all is what the nativity story is all about. Heavenly reading!
