'So, long after the star had set, after the angels had roosted,
after the shepherds had hurried back to their sheep,
there was one person still awake in a dark stable,
watching over a sleeping child.'

Complemented by Fabian Negrin's atmospheric illustrations, this picture book is destined to become a classic.

In the media
Father and Son os the best yet. It captures the sense of wonderment every time a father looks at his child.

Sonia Benster, The Children's Bookshop

"This is a clever and beautifully told version of the biblical story, which really makes you think. Fabian Negrin's magical, dreamlike illustrations of angels sleeping under the twinkling stars and exotic birds flying through pale coloured skies, are reminiscent in places of Chagall. A truly wonderful picture book which deserves a place as a work of art."
