It's Christmas Eve in the year 722, and the young orphan Kristoph, is accompanying the priest Boniface through the German countryside. As they hurry to reach the next village by nightfall, they come upon a group of people in the forest who are worshiping an oak tree and preparing to sacrifice the son of the village chieftain. To prove that the oak is powerless and that there is only One True God, Boniface miraculously fells the giant tree with a single ax stroke, and in its place stands an evergreen—an event changing the lives of all who witness it. For readers and listeners 4 and up, Claudia Cangilla McAdam shares a little-known legend of the season, which Dave Hill depicts in dramatic paintings.
