A stunningly original picture book full of fortitude, friendship, freedom, camels, sacrifice, sand, and more camels!
Once upon a time, three kings came out of a distant land and followed a star to a little known town across the desert. They brought with them gold, frankincense and myrrh, presents for a newborn child. But there was another king who set out on the long and difficult journey - the fourth king. Unlike the others he arrived too late and empty handed... This heartwarming fable, brought to life with vibrant comic-strip-style art and two magnificent gatefold pages, is not just the story of the other wise man (and his camel), it is also a tale to remind us of the true meaning of Christmas.
