Publisher's Description

The wooden figures in a Christmas crèche come to life to save a poor old woman in this truly original, deeply moving contemporary parable. Told with 96 pictures by Peter Collington, the master of the wordless story, this is a Christmas treasure the entire family can enjoy.

In the Publishers Weekly 12th Annual Off-the-Cuff Awards, booksellers chose A Small Miracle as the Book We’re Sorriest to See Go Out of Print. Knopf is proud to reintroduce this picture book classic–priced $2 lower than the original–just in time for Christmas.


From the Hardcover edition.

Editorial Reviews

"This is a Christmas miracle like no other, with such richness in image and story that children will return to it again and again" (Booklist, starred review).

"Without a doubt the most original Christmas book of the year not the least because of its surprising yet, in context, fitting combination of the devout and the surreal."--The Horn Book, starred review

"The story is sweet, simple and wordless. The illustrations are intricate enough to warrant reading this one over and over."--American Bookseller

"...an upbeat story to treasure for this and many Christmases to come."--School Library Journal

“In a series of meticulously crafted panels, Collington poignantly relates the wordless story of a penniless old woman whose good turn is rewarded–she rescues the village church’s nativity scene from a vandal–when the figurines come to life and save her.”–Publishers Weekly, Starred
