This New Zealand published picture book is set in today's New Zealand culture. The traditional nativity story of the birth of Jesus is retold within the context of rural Aotearoa in all its richness. The story begins in Autumn with a fantail, the angel Gabriel in disguise, arriving with a message for Mary. From the rimu table that Joseph is making, to the aurora australis and pohutukawa trees, this story is Kiwiana at its best whilst maintaining the reverence of the traditional story.
