Chapter One

The kids at our church are putting on a Christmas pageant. They asked me if I'd like to be a part from the play. I said, "Yes, I would like to be apart from the play."

They asked me if I'd like to be on the stage.
"Yes," I answered, "the first stage out of town."

My Sunday school teacher didn't think that was so funny, so he gave me a part anyway. I'm one of the three wise guys.

He says that will be a good part for me.

This is a cute and somewhat humorous interpretation of the story of the 3 wise men from a child's point of view. The illustrations are detailed and add a unique and fun flair of their own to the narrative. Humor is interspersed throughout this quick read which can be shared with most age groups. Overall, a cute read.
