Look at that unlovely face on the cover--right in your face! You see, Humphrey is very upset because he lost his blanket, the one that keeps him warm during cold desert nights. His two companions still have theirs. If you know the way of camels, you know that they are not the most congenial of animals. Because the other two camels are warm and his master is cozy in his little tent, Humphrey is indignant! He pushes his way into the tent with his master, pushing his master out. Finally, at the next oasis, the master obtains and gives Humphrey a nice replacement blanket.
At each page of Humphrey's growing annoyance, Author/Artist Carol Heyer gives the camel increasingly sillier faces and poses. Humphrey's unattractive poses and laugh-aloud antics detract the reader from obvious clues on each page just what this story is about. There are three clues on the cover alone that indicate the nature of the story: the title, that bright star in the upper-right corner, and a camel wearing a half-bridle.
That replacement blanket becomes very important in this story: it becomes a symbol for the free nature of gifts from the heart. Heyer has created such an original approach to the traditional Christmas story that the reader actually forgets it is the season until the last three pages. However, a second, closer examination of visual clues on every page does, indeed, make this a wonderful Christmas story.
The book begins and ends with the same words, each in a unique and completely different context. In the first, the reader sees a close-up of one of Humphrey's beautiful eyes. It's a jolt! The last time the words are used will give you goose-bumps and a lump in the throat.
I'll say no more. This is a book that any believer in the Christmas story will love and want to share with both children and other adults. Highly recommended! In fact, during the Christmas season, put this book, paperback though it is, right on your coffee table and encourage your Christian guests to visit Humphrey. They'll be glad they did.
Incredible art work, visually awesome for children and adults of all ages.
The story is just as touching, Humphrey wanted his blanket, that he had lost so bad, and once he got it, he gave it as a gift to the baby Jesus,
what a wonderful story of giving.
A book that is a treausre for all generations.
Everyone should buy this book and read it to the little ones in their life.- I am glad we did.
