Cat in the Manger

Hardcover (Henry Holt and Co. (BYR) Oct. 15, 2001) , 1st edition
A moving retelling of the Christmas story as seen through the eyes of one little cat

"Everything was silent. It was as if all the animals held their breath. We looked at the baby, and the baby looked at us."

A long time ago in a faraway land, a cat lived in a barn. He had to share it with the other animals: cows and goats, chickens and . . . mice! But that was all right; he was a good mouser.

Then one wintry night the door flew open and in came a man and a woman to take shelter from the snow. Soon the cat heard the cry of a new baby. Visitors came to kneel before the family. In the crowded barn, every face was turned to the tiny infant.

Through the eyes of one small cat, award-winning author/illustrator Michael Foreman retells the wondrous story of the first Christmas.
