A wonderfully illustrated story introducing children to the true meaning of Christmas and who Jesus really is. When three quails overhear an angel telling Mary she is going to give birth to the Son of God, they are surprised and bewildered. Soon afterwards, they are 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 is Mary’s baby they are talking about. To their horror, the birds then 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... The quarrelsome threesome – who are usually only bothered about finding a decent breakfast – find that life is never the same again as they embark on their daring mission.
