'Lively without being irreverent.' - The Bookseller 'A thoughtful and heartfelt survey.' - TES 'Just what the modern child should have' - Marianne Adey, Co-Ordinator Children's Book Award 'Let's imagine that Jesus was born today', these are the opening words of this delightful book. With few words, on pages with pictures that perfectly portray the story, the author and illustrator echo the original Christmas story until the last page when they remind us that everything Jesus taught and gave us two thousand years ago remains the same today. -- website REVIEW FOR COMPANION TITLE: E-MAIL JESUS@ANYTIME A very different book -- but one which has also been inspired by the internet - is 'e-mail: Jesus @anytime'. This is a children's book which imagines how the modern media would report Jesus' life and trial. It's cleverly written in the present tense -- so you feel the immediacy of the story -- and there are some very nice touches. I particularly like this illustration which goes with the words: 'Four authors write true stories about his life. They become bestsellers' -- and there you've got a picture of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John at their book signing! That's 'e-mail: Jesus @anytime' -- by Hilary Robinson and Anthony Lewis published by Hodder Childrens Books. It's GBP4.99 in paperback -- and GBP9.99 for the hardback. - Judy Merry, Good Morning Sunday, Radio 2
