Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly
With all the glitter of his The Rainbow Fish, Marcus Pfister uses shiny foil inlays to add sparkle to the board book edition of The Christmas Star, adapted from the translation by Alison James. Shepherds, kings and the animals of the "deep forest" all follow the shiny stars to the waiting stable. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
In this board book, the main attraction is the foil stamping used to make the stars that shine on each of the muted pages. They shine to lead the shepherds, the three kings, and the wild animals to the stable in Bethlehem where the Holy Child lies. It is a retelling of the familiar Christmas story with an added gimmick—silver foil objects such as the palace turrets, crowns, and the chests that the three kings have lashed to their camels. One quibble, the text refers to all of the stars merging into one magnificent star, but they never do in the illustrations, which are a group of little stars that form the larger star. 2004 (orig. 1993), North-South, Ages 3 to 8.
