KIRKUS REVIEW

This adaptation of the Second Shepherd's Play, a fifteenth century cycle drama, will stand as one of the more unusual Christmas books of the season. The comical situation in the beginning-- a lamb unsuccessfully disguised as a baby by the silly rascal, Mak-- will amuse young sensibilities, and the transition to the second visitation by the shepherds, this time to the Christ child, is accomplished with ease. Illustrations, some in shades of red and gold and some in black and white, are clear and interesting for their color design; although he has captured a medieval mood, the artist is not at his best here.
