About the Author:

Martin Waddell is the award-winning author of many books for children, including Can't You Sleep, Little Bear? and the other Little Bear books, illustrated by Barbara Firth, Farmer Duck, illustrated by Helen Oxenbury, and Owl Babies, illustrated by Patrick Benson. He lives in Northern Ireland.

From Booklist:

PreS-Gr. 2. 'Tis the eve of Christmas--a cold winter's night--when Kind Ox offers to share his stable by the inn. Assuring each tentative visitor that "there's always room for a little one," he first gives shelter to Old Dog, then, in quick succession, Stray Cat, Small Mouse, and Tired Donkey, who is accompanied by Joseph and a weary Mary. As predators and prey gather together in "the peace of a stable," they learn lessons about tolerance and generosity. Finally, they bear witness to the birth of the most wondrous "Little One" of all: the baby Jesus. Waddell, the author of the popular Little Bear series illustrated by Barbara Firth and many others, delivers another winner here. Quiet, meaningful, and ideal for the youngest readers, Waddell's simple text in large, easy-to-read type is rendered magical by Cockcroft's glowing acrylics. A majestic addition to any holiday collection. Terry Glover
