The Christmas Show

2.72 based on 10 ratings & 3 reviews on Goodreads.com

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!

We've really enjoyed reading The Christmas Show together, it's funny, you can easily relate to the characters. It's a perfect story for this time of year

A wonderfully comic account of a school nativity play. You would have to be clinically depressed not to laugh at this affectionate hatchet job.
