A star falls from the winter sky into a wood, and there two shepherds find a strange infant. One of them takes the baby home and raises it as his own. Though exquisitely beautiful of face and form, the Star-Child turns out to be a cruel and selfish boy. One day he taunts a poor beggar-woman who, to his horror, then claims to be his mother. He rejects her and from that moment his beauty forsakes him and he becomes a despised and shunned outcast. What follows is the story of his struggle through to the crowning glory of his redemption. A beautiful, beautiful story! For ages 8-12.
