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.
Here’s what a few people have said about this much-loved book:
“This book became a regular Christmas tree tradition with our family… hubby's favourite and the kids love it.” – Dee Kaylock
“This unique take on the Christmas Story is a family favourite in our household. Sensational Semmens!” – Gabrielle Sinclair-Youth.
“Forget the kids! It was me who loved this in our house. OK the kids did too!” – Sally Smith
Cameron, the author, says of Star! Stable! Saviour!: “I’ve performed this story around Australia, at many carols and Christmas events, and it never ceases to raise a smile and provoke a comment. It’s my hope that everyone can see, in some way, the awe and wonder from the traditional Christmas story – it’s a strange, thought-provoking story that I thought deserved a strange, thought-provoking re-telling – hence the mega-alliteration!”
This book surely is a great gift this Christmas – for all the kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews. So buy a small stack and you’ll be set for the whole family this year!
