Award-winning illustrator Ivan Gantschev has a special genius for snow-filled settings as fans of his feisty Snow Leopards already know. In this deep winter tale, Rabbit is running to avoid some Christmas Day hunters when he falls into a snow covered cave--right on top of a hibernating bear! Roused from hibernation, Bear tells Rabbit about a strange dream of a woman giving birth on a starlit desert night surrounded by animals. Rabbit realizes that Bear has had a Christmas dream. Rabbit tells his new friend about the birth of Jesus on that night long ago. Perfect for Christmas sharing, this story shows the birth of Jesus from a truly unique perspective. Gantschev's warm watercolors give a feeling of coziness and brightness that is sure to appeal to parents and children alike.
Ivan Gantschev was born in Bulgaria in 1925. After surviving World War II, he worked as an artist. In 1966, he emigrated to Germany, where he lives today. His prize-winning works have been shown in galleries all over the world. Several of his books have been published by North-South Books. He says he illustrates picture books because he wants to show children that it's possible to solve problems peacefully--and besides, it's a lot of fun!
