Christmas is the common thread running through these stories - from the events of the first Christmas to different aspects of the festival as it is celebrated today. Each story features a different animal - some biblical, others contemporary - narrating their Christmas story. These range from the light-hearted to the reflective, showing that Christmas is more than a historical event and giving the reader new insights into the significance of the Christmas story. Featured animals include a dormouse, sheep, cat, raven, donkey, koala, worm and dog.
