"A Folktale adapted from the Polish." A Christmas story with many bright peasant style lithographs in the same colours. First all the villagers come with gifts for the baby Jesus. Then, after they leave, he is so excited he can't go to sleep. Only the purr of the little kitten, who must wash the ashes from her coat before he can sing to the baby, can lull him to sleep. Includes piano score for "Ah, ah, pussies two".
