About the Book:
“Forget the kids! It was me who loved this in our house. OK the kids did too!” – Sally Smith
The traditional Christmas story has been told and re-told for nearly two thousand years – but never quite like this. Poet Cameron Semmens’s quirky and alliterated re-telling of it in Star! Stable! Savior! brings a totally fresh perspective on the ancient Christmas story.

Originally published in 2007 under the title The Story of The Star, The Stable and The Saviour, the book sold out after only a few years. Now it’s back with a fresh, punchy new title.



About the Author

Cameron Semmens is a poet, entertainer and poetry educator with 15 books to his name. He makes his living through words: performing, running workshops and book design. He lives in the Dandenong Rangers with his wife and two children.

My Review
This is a sweet book with lots of s's. The author's use of words starting with S is quite clever and I am sure children will enjoy this different telling of the Christmas story. The illustrations are well done. This would make a great Christmas present for children.
