Item Description...
What really happened to the gifts of the Thre Wise Men This is the story of what might have happened to the gifts given to the infant Jesus by the Three Wise Men. The tale centers around Mendel, the drummer boy's son, whom Mary entrusts with the gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Mendel is determined to use the gifts to help those even less fortunate than he. He gives gold to the shepherd whose sheep have been stolen; he places frankincense in the gnarled hand of Anna; but he goes to bed on Christmas Eve uncertain of what to do with the myrrh. By accident, Mendel spills the jar over his withered legs, and then feels them tingle. He can walk!

Publishers Description
In this beautifully illustrated children's book, the well-known legend of the little drummer boy is combined with the gifts given to Jesus by the Three Wise Men. Mendel, son of Simon, who was the little drummer boy, is given the three gifts by Mary shortly before her ascension into Heaven. Unable to walk, Mendel is wheeled around in a small cart as he bestows the gold on a neighbor shepherd who has lost his flock and the frankincense to a devout old woman. While trying to think of whom he should give the myrrh to, Mendel drops it and the fragrant ointment spills onto his paralyzed legs. Mendel then realizes he can walk and run, for that is the Miracle of the Myrrh. The wonderful illustrations and entertaining text complement each other to create this beautiful children's Christmas tale.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Original, entertaining, and highly recommended  Mar 12, 2001
Marci Alborghetti grew up in a family where Christmas was a celebration that lasted from the first week in December to Three Kings Day. She always wondered what happened to the fabled gifts of the Magi, so one Christmas season she wrote The Miracle Of The Myrrh to answer this timeless question from two thousand years ago. Award-winning French artist Herve Blondon richly illustrates Alborghetti's original, entertaining, and highly recommended picturebook story of a grown-up Drummer Boy, his son, and the fate of the frankincense, gold and myrrh.
Great Family Book  Oct 24, 2000
As a small town librarian, I recommend this book for family reading over the holidays. Its message is as simple as it is profound: like breathing out and breathing in, you have to give in order to get. Also, wonderful illustrations. This story is a natural for a composer of melodic talent. Who hasn't enjoyed Amahl and the Night Visitors? Read it and see if you agree.
A treasured addition to every family's library!  Oct 12, 2000
Every year I search for just the right Christmas storybook to add to my daughter's collection. The Miracle of the Myrrh is a wonderful story that celebrates the true spirit of giving and Christianity. It is a welcome relief for a season that has become so commercialized. I know this book will become one of our favorite Holiday reads.
Bringing the Spirit of Christmas to the Entire Family  Oct 5, 2000
The Mircle of the Myrrh is beautifully written and created an oasis for our family to stop and truly reflect on the spirit and meaning of Christmas. It is written with a new perspective and caught the attention of both the adults and children in our family with its freshness, beauty and insights. It will be one of our most beloved family traditions for many years to come!
A Christmas Classic  Sep 28, 2000
Marci Alborghetti has written a children's story which will be a Christmas favorite for years to come. The Miracle of the Myrrh is a sensitive tale showing us the blessings we receive when we generously offer our gifts to meet another's need. I can picture myuself reading this to a child every Christmas season. It is a story which will never grow old. Herve Blondon captures the story visually in such a way that, once the stroy is read, the child who is not yet reading can "read" the story again just by looking at the illustrations.
