/ -- The story of the Magi, who followed a bright star to Bethlehem to bring gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh to the baby Jesus, is filled with mystery. Christmas cards often show them worshiping with the shepherds at the manger, but biblical history puts them in Bethlehem a year or two after Jesus's birth. They have been called kings (usually three kings) and wise men. The Bible refers to them as Magi from the East but does not say how many were in the group, only that they brought three gifts. People speculate about exactly where they came from and even who they represented. No matter who they were, they came from a long way to honor a savior they'd only heard about.
In Beatriz M. Robinson's new children's book, The Magnificent Journey of Roopert the Scribe and the Great Princess Paasha, animals join the three kings on their quest to find the King of kings. Curious to know more about a bright star and the baby savior that his friend Paasha (King Melchior's dog) told him about, a mouse named Roopert grabs his notebook and quill pen and stows away on the caravan to record everything he hears and sees. But what will he do when he overhears King Herod's evil plan? Along the way, they encounter robbers who want to steal the costly gifts, must hide from Herod's cat, and become part of the greatest story ever told.
When describing the story, this first-time author says, "The reader will discover that the three kings from the East were among some of the first believers in Jesus." They will also read about the jealousy and hatred that Herod had for Jesus. She calls it "a story of love, loyalty, friendship, and faith."ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
