Let me tell you a story. There was a busy husband, breadwinner, father of three, trying to keep in focus what the festive season is really all about. Into his life dropped a CD, a talking book in fact, giving a bird's eye view of the birth of Jesus and although a little older than the intended target audience, do you know what? Something of the mystery of God coming to earth in the weakest form shone through and spoke into my life. This audio CD uses the adventures of three little quails, who happened to be around when the world-changing events took place, to tell the Christmas story. Superbly narrated by Russell Boulter who is perhaps best known as DS Boulton in television's The Bill, this will be ideal for giving parents a night off from telling bedtime stories and to make sure they are lulled to sleep at the end, Sir Cliff Richard sings an appropriate song. The story is also released as an animated movie including the voices of Cannon and Ball and the "King Of The Jungle" Joe Pasquale. What did I learn from this audio CD? Not to stress and meddle with things God has already sorted out well before I knew anything about them.

Product Description
Narrated by TV's Russell Boulter and featuring Sir Cliff Richard singing the title track.

When three quails overhear an angel telling Mary she's going to give birth to the Son of God, they're quite bewildered.

Soon afterwards, they're captured by King Herod's bird catcher and thrown into a cage in the palace for fattening up. As three strangers arrive looking for a new King, the quails realise it's Mary's baby they're talking about.

Then, to their horror, the birds learn that Herod wants Him dead. The race is on to find Mary and the baby before Herod can carry out his dreadful plan. But first, the quails have to escape from the evil King....
