Part carousel, part shadow box, this elegant, stand-alone Nativity book, designed by a master paper engineer, reflects all the wonder of Christmas and will be treasured for seasons to come.

And the angel said, Behold, thou shalt conceive and bring forth a son, and call his name Jesus.

So begins the Nativity tale of The First Noël, the classic text from the King James Bible that has been read at Christmastime for hundreds of years. Imagine that age-old story presented in a beautiful novelty book that unfolds to create a traditional carousel, with each spread a snowy-white, cut-paper scene springing out from a background of red. From pop-up artist Jan Pienkowski comes this splendid display of the Christmas story, from the angel's Annunciation to the visit of the Magi — an innovative, eye-catching addition to any holiday table.
Jan Pieńkowski (1936–2022), author-illustrator of the best-selling Haunted House pop-up book, was a two-time winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal for outstanding illustration. He was also the creator of The Animals Went In Two by Two: A Noah’s Ark Pop-up Book.
