In this retelling of the old French legend, a juggler offers to the Christ Child the only Christmas gift he has. “The full-color pictures with subtle tonal modulations are an integral part of the design of the lumious pages full of movement and vitality. The Italianate aspects of the setting are beautifully realized.”--The Horn Book

Baker & Taylor
A once-famous Italian juggler, now old and a beggar, gives one final performance before a statue of Our Lady and the Holy Child

This book is powerful testimony to the gifts we are each given by God, and using them well. Makes me cry everytime I read it to my kiddos!
