CLIP Review: Humphrey's First Christmas

Author & Illustrator:  Carol Heyer


Carrying one of the three wise men who are bringing gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh to the baby Jesus, one would think that Humphrey would be full of joy.  Instead, this regal beast of kings is grumpy, grumbling and disgruntled!  Why, he's even complaining about his name, thinking -

Beloved
Most Beauteous
and Exalted King of All
should be my name...

And to make matters worse, Humphrey has lost his dearest possession.  Humphrey's antics to retrieve his treasure may bring smiles to the reader, but as he kneels before the manger, this disgruntled camel himself begins to smile.  What gift could he possibly give to the ONE who truly is

                                            Beloved
                                      Most Beauteous
                                   and Exalted King of All...

This beautifully written story, along with its gorgeous, yet whimsical artwork will clearly lead readers to an understanding of the first Christmas.
