105 The Savior Is Born Gleeson, Brian; Van Nutt, Robert (illustrator); Freeman, Morgan (narrator)
Very Good. 
Hardcover. 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket and CD, published 1992 by Rabbit Ears Books. Moderate edge-crumpling to jacket. Price clipped from jacket flap. Very clean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight; CD pocket unopened --CD has never been played. Ca. 34 pages (pages not numbered); gorgeous color illustrations; audio compact disc. Language: English. For ages ca. 5-8. 'Other illustrators have used the conventions of stained glass in creating art for picture books, but few have been as successful as Van Nutt in creating illustrations that look like traditional stained glass windows. The gestures of the figures, the jewel-bright hues, the placement of the black outlines, the style of the overpainting, and the luminous quality of the colors are all reminiscent of stained glass in churches and cathedrals. Retelling the Christmas story from the Annunciation to the return from Egypt to Nazareth, Gleeson's simple, respectful text is longer than most picture-book versions. On the first track of the CD that is in a pocket inside the back cover, actor Morgan Freeman reads the text with clarity and dignity. Accompanying his words are the lilting sounds of the Christ Church Cathedral Choir of Oxford, England. The other 6 tracks on the CD are other Christmas carols and songs, which are equally beautiful and, with the exception of Silent Night, probably unfamiliar to American children. A fine, traditional celebration of the season.'--Carolyn Phelan, Booklist.

When Hyacinthe awakens, the stranger is gone, leaving behind a cabinet of exquisite beauty and the unspoken question--who was he? Readers will have to decide for themselves.

NOTE: Oversize format-- cannot ship outside U.S. via Flat-Rate envelope; may require additional international postage. 'Waffle feels awful, painfully different, and full of self-doubt. He's a world-class worrier, a wiggler, a wobbler, and, well, a waffler. Using only a few black lines and some amorphous blotches of color, Raschka draws Waffle as a study in indecision, writhing, wiggling, and sometimes almost disappearing under the relentlessly cheerful scrutiny of ranks of identical smiley faces. Then something happens, and Waffle works a wonder. Raschka's spare, alliterative text will be great fun to read aloud, and many kids will recognize themselves in Waffle and rejoice at his success....'--Michael Cart, Booklist.
