Title

A down-to-earth version of a heavenly tale. Jack and the Manger retells the story of Jesus’s birth as if it were a Newfoundland folktale. It’s all seen through the eyes of Jack, the hero of many a story, who befriends a young couple on their walk to Bethlehem. There’s a bit of ‘angel talk’, some gravel pit camping, an edge-of-your-seat birth drama, and the low-down on how Caesar Augustus’s ‘count-and-tax plan’ brought them all together. 

Gentle, playful and very funny, Jack and the Manger is the second in an on-going print series of Jack tales, written by Andy Jones, one of Newfoundland’s finest storytellers and actors, and is sure to please even the most Grinch-like of readers.
