The Christmas story and what follows: the fleeing of Jesus, Mary and Joseph from Herod’s soldiers to Egypt. This is a book with timeless crossover appeal and a message that couldn’t be more relevant.
“An excellent way to help children make sense of what they are seeing on news bulletins every day … It’s a simple but important story about the kindness of strangers that refuses to preach and – amid all the policy-changing bluster – reminds us to remind our children that there is more to consider this Christmas than the looming Lego crisis.”
“…makes the connection between the story of Mary, Joseph and Jesus seeking refuge in Egypt, and today’s refugees fleeing their own King Herod with delicacy and beauty.”
“The nativity and the flight to Egypt, an simply recounted by Anne Booth and tenderly drawn in line and wash by Sam Usher, connect with the plight of modern refugees, in Refuge from which £5 for every copy sold goes to the charity War Child. A stocking filler about Christmas that fulfils its spirit.”
