A witty Christmas picture book about the 'wise man' who missed the point; When Ashtar the Wise sees a new star in the East he knows immediately what it signifies.
He sets off to find the new king, and uses his wisdom to help all he meets on the way.
But somehow, his great knowledge keeps tripping him up.
He misses each important clue about the purpose of his journey and fails to see the events of the first Christmas unfolding right before his eyes.
Rich colour illustrations complement the story, showing readers what Ashtar is missing and adding to the gentle humour of the text.
