It's Christmas and the children have been practising very hard for their nativity play. The narrators are word-perfect, the Important Angel has brushed her hair and the audience are in their seats. But when the curtain rises, no one's expecting a spare shepherd to steal the show ...
A bright, bold, brilliantly observed book that's full of festive fun -- with a gorgeously glittery cover that makes it the perfect stocking filler!

Rebecca Patterson graduated from Anglia Ruskin University in 2009 with an MA in Children's Book Illustration and came third in the Macmillan Prize for Illustration in the same year. A rising star in children's picture books, she won the 2012 Roald Dahl Funny Prize for her book, My Big Shouting Day (Jonathan Cape).
