    Clopper is an adorable storyteller. He includes scriptures on many pages as he describes his experiences during his time with Jesus. The pictures also show accurately that Jesus wasn't a newborn when the wise men came to visit the Lord. The story follows a progression of events including the time Mary and Joseph stayed in Egypt with Jesus until they were told it was safe to return. But because of the reputation of Herod's evil son, they took no chances and decided to continue on to Nazareth. A map shows the route their journey took. I enjoyed the detailed illustrations and the story given from the donkey's point of view. This book could be read any time of the year even though it's geared toward Christmas time.

    Clopper is a delight to the ear and eye!

    Clopper and the Night Travelers is a well-grounded, child-friendly telling of the first years of Jesus¿ life. Shared through the eyes 'and ears' of a donkey, the readers hear the story from a new voice. Nearly each page set has 'on a parchment page' the Biblical words allowing older children to learn not only Clopper¿s story, but The Story. Illustrated by Ed Olson, the inviting characters add to the tale. Emily King 'be sure to read her stories of Mrs. Twiggimbotham' continues in her use of fine language and correct grammar to present a new Christmas book, both pleasing to children and adults.
