The Stable Cat's Christmas by Christina S. Vrba, illustrated by Gail Yerrill ~ Review

The Stable Cat's Christmas
My Review:

The little orange cat the lives in the stable where Jesus was born has no gift to give the newborn King, does he have anything to offer the little baby Jesus?

A charming story of a cat who wants to be like the other animals and have something to give Jesus. The story was charming, with delightful illustrations to accompany it that are classic and really help to establish the tone of the book. I liked most of the story, but I thought that it took an odd turn at the end, where he gains stripes. Personally I thought that the book would have ended well with him finding a gift for Jesus and worshipping Him, but it felt kinda of odd to me the turn that it took.

Overall, a cute story for Christmas, with beautiful pictures, that makes for a fun read at Christmastime. I'm not sure how I feel about the way that it ended, and personally it just struck me as odd, and it ended up reading more like a legend-type tale. But I really liked the message of no matter who you are, there is always something to offer Jesus Christ.
