In this retelling of the old French legend, a juggler offers to the Christ Child the only Christmas gift he has. "The full-color pictures with subtle tonal modulations are an integral part of the design of the lumious pages full of movement and vitality. The Italianate aspects of the setting are beautifully realized."-- The Horn Book
