The Little Drummer Boy
Based on the Christmas Song
This classic Christmas story about a shy boy who plays his trusted drum for the newborn king will charm children and parents alike.
A brand new story from Bernadette Watts, never before published.
Watts infuses the scenes with light, gently illuminating tiled rooftops and flooding the Nativity with a golden glow. A bright, traditional retelling of the classic.
The beautiful illustrations are filled with detail and seem to be lit from above by the star. A lovely retelling of the classic song
Youth Services Book Review
The song, with its soft, repetitive refrain and first-person perspective, leaves room for the imagination to fill in the emotional range of a magical experience.
