I wish this book had been reprinted in a hardback version also! I was given this book by my mom many years ago and my son has always loved it. Once I saw it was back in print I wanted to order one for his annual Christmas Eve gift (new jammies and a Christmas book every Eve) but was so disappointed that it was only offered in paperback. The tradition has always included a beautiful hardback book to keep forever and eventually read to his own children someday. Needless to say, I bought it and he was glad to have his own copy but I wish I had been given the choice to decide between paperback and hardcover.

The story itself it an absolutely beautiful reminder that those who give of themselves will be blessed in more ways that one. And, that wordless picture books can be enjoyed by people of all ages-including a 15 year old young man and his mom!

I don't remember where I first saw the recommendation for this book, but I am so glad I found out about this wonderful story! I've had my hard copy for years. Now I ordered this paper copy to give to my granddaughter for Christmas. I show this book to everyone who may be visiting to "read" (no words, just wonderful pictures). This is one of my favorite Christmas books ever and I read it myself every Christmas. And always read it to any kids visiting, who seem to love it too. I cannot recommend this book highly enough!!! I'd love to tell everyone to read it! I love the very sweet Christmas story. I won't describe the plot, that would spoil it, you really need to read it for yourself.

This beautiful little story was without words. I hadn't realized that when I bought it. But I was pleasantly surprised at all
I got from the telling illustrations. I "read," it over and over as I seemed to see something I had missed the time before. To
enjoy "reading," a story without words but having so many emotions involved was so different. Now I want to order more
of Peter Collington's wordless stories.
I felt deeply for the poor old woman. It made me cry. But, the ending was so brilliant I finished the book with a smile. This
will definitely be one of my favorite Christmas stories. I try to find more and more beautiful stories /books to add to my col-
lection of Christmas stories/books. This year this story was my favorite one. In fact, I love it so much I can't pack in with my
other Christmas books.
I hope to share this magnificient story with my grandson soon.

Like others have said, there is no writing in this book, the story is portrayed through the artwork. Nice book to look through and comment on with little ones, even if you don't have written words to read (but it took a little getting used to).

Anyone who has looked thru my precious book always gives it back to me with tears in their eyes.

What a heartwarming story -- a fairy tale that could almost come true; and you kind of wish it would!!

The illustrations in this book come alive with a powerful simplicity.

The artwork is the kind that leads your eye into all its multi-faceted (yet simply rendered) details, and each time I look at it, I am rewarded with more details that I had missed before.

I can almost hear the anticipatory almost-sacred hush on that village's cold, snowy, almost deserted streets on this very special, last day before Christmas.

A VERY special book!!

I first came across this book when working as a nanny for two little girls. They received this book from their grandma for the holidays and I looked through it. This book literally took my breath away.
This book is the essence of "a picture is worth a thousand words". The story is told in pictures only, no words whatsoever, and I continue to find something new in the details every time I look at the pictures.
The story of a poor gypsy woman who uses her last bits of strength in a bid to stay alive on Christmas Eve. Destitute, no help in sight, she saves a Nativity set in a church when it is knocked over by a vandal, and comes to have her own life saved in return.
The artwork is superb, I shared the book with people at work, all of whom said they would be going out to get copies of the book for their own families. This book is ageless, appeals to all, and will remind you and yours of the true spirit of the holiday season.
This book is no "Small Miracle."

This marvelous little book tells a Christmas-time tale with emotion, imagination, humor, tenderness and not one single word. The beautiful and unusual artwork says all and inspiringly so.
I have never "read" a book that is so in depth without a single word. This IS the meaning of Christmas!
