Item Description...
A once-famous Italian juggler, now old and a beggar, gives one final performance before a statue of Our Lady and the Holy Child

Publishers Description
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"

Reviews - What do our customers think?
wonderful classic!  Dec 28, 2007
I just love reading this book to my children. They enjoyed it more than I did. This is definitely tagged a classic in my book and I won't be getting rid of it like I do other books that kids grow out of.
Extraordinary  Mar 9, 2007
This retelling of an ancient moral story along with the superb pictures make it a necessary addition to the select library used by grandparents and parents for reading aloud, over and over again, to the young ones.
Clown of God   Jan 12, 2007
This book is a great read for all ages. A strong life lesson and a touching story that will reach out to those who are interested in a book that teaches something about life.
Loved this Book!   Jan 10, 2007
I love this book. Five in a Row has a great unit study on it. My children (3 yrs and 6 yrs) love it too. It has juggling to appeal to children and it has a beautiful ending. I have bought it for gifts as well as having my own copy.
The Gift of One's Talents  Aug 23, 2006
I remember this tale from my childhood when it was read to me by a nun. Tomie De Paola has beautifully illustrated this story and retold it by placing the events in medieval Italy. Since this is one of my favorites, I have purchased several copies for my grandchildren, and a gift to other grandparents who like reading to the little ones. Be prepared to feel the emotion of this story, it gets me all the time.
