The bestselling author of A Wrinkle in Time takes a fantastical look at the childhood of Jesus in two allegories set in an Egyptian village. In "Pakko's Camel," Yehoshuah, the poor son of a carpenter, befriends Pakko, the arrogant son of a rich merchant. Yehoshuah cares for of Pakko's camel and shares with him the knowledge of the precious gifts he received from three wise men. But when Yehoshuah's treasures are taken, he quickly learns that all gifts have a price. In "The Sphinx at Dawn," Yehoshuah and his camel journey into the desert, where they come across the monstrous, hungry Sphinx. Intrigued and unafraid, Yehoshuah endeavors to answer the Sphinx's riddles-and in doing so, he begins the real journey of a man with an incredible destiny. Known for both her literary accomplishments as a winner of the Newbery Medal and the National Book Award, and her spiritual outlook, Madeleine L'Engle presents two affecting and inspiring tales for readers of any age.
