Description

On a wintry night, all the barn animals reminisce about what important roles their great-great-great grandparents had played at the manger when a special child was born.

Pippin the pig--whose ancestors weren't there-doesn't know this most familiar of Christmas stories and keeps asking questions. "What baby?" "What child?" The other animals ignore her; after all, she's only a pig. But Pippin eventually saves the day when a woman with her young child gets lost in a snowstorm and needs help.

Werner Zimmermann's warm illustrations capture the animals emotions perfectly and make this a Christmas story to treasure forever.
