Overview

A gorgeous retelling of the Christmas story transports readers to Bethlehem to see the new baby king, offering a giftable view of the nativity scene. Voices roll across the desert sands to Hoshmakaka, a curmudgeonly old camel, whispering that he has been chosen for the great responsibility of carrying gifts to the new baby king. With reluctance, Hoshmakaka accepts his task. Every day in the heat crossing the desert, his pack grows ever more burdensome as the crowds of people, anxious to welcome the new king, give him their gifts to carry. He is "as strong as ten horses" he proudly tells the younger camels. But, oh, his gout Oh, his sciatica Nevertheless, Hoshmakaka plods on until he reaches Bethlehem. In the end he realizes the great honor of his task and never again is there a burden too heavy for him to carry.
