In this straightforward heartwarming tale, the villagers of King Island worry if they do not get the new priest from the freighter to their island through the high seas there will be no one to celebrate Christmas. In this joyful holiday folkloric tale, the whole village comes together to make it a memorable Christmas. Muñoz’ authentic brilliant stylized pictures accentuate the power of community to overcome adversity.
This is another beautiful book by Jean Rogers. It tells about the King Islanders waiting for the priest to come by to hold a Christmas service. It is beautifully illustrated by Rie Muñoz.
A beautiful little story illustrated by one of my all-time favorite artists, Rie Munoz.
