Item description for We Three Kings by Gennady Spirin...

Overview
An illustrated edition of the traditional Christmas song.

Publishers Description
"We three kings of Orient are;
Bearing gifts we traverse afar,
Field and fountain, moor and mountain,
Following yonder star."
Over two thousand years ago, three great kings journeyed across the desert, riding through the heat of day and dark of night. Each from a different region, each beckoned by the same gleaming star, each bearing treasures, each wishing to welcome a newborn asleep in a manger's hay -- a baby named Jesus, who would change the world.
This beloved Christmas carol, written in 1857, celebrates the wise men's journey and the first Christmas night. Internationally renowned artist Gennady Spirin pays his own type of homage with paintings so exquisitely detailed and wrought that they, too, are a gift -- to that baby in the manger and to you.

Reviews - What do customers think about We Three Kings?

pretty but too short with repeated pages  Dec 9, 2009
The illustrations are beautiful but I was disappointed to see that the chorus page is repeated five times. When I say repeated, I mean the exact 2-page illustration is repeated, not just the chorus words. So every other page you turn, you see the exact page you saw 20 seconds earlier. It's a short book (20 pages of story content) and when half of the pages are repeats, it makes it even shorter. My children were confused and kept saying "we already saw that." I probably wouldn't have bought it if I had seen it beforehand.
 
pictures a bit washed out  Nov 10, 2009
I bought this because it was visually appealing, but the pictures actually looked washed out when I received it.
 
Fantastic Book!  Jan 22, 2009
The illustrations are beautiful and the book covers the entirety of the song, with one page for each of the 5 verses, plus a repeated "chorus" page. They do not compress "Frankincense" and "Myrhh" into one verse, as some recordings do. Then at the end there is the sheet music and all the lyrics on one page. One small issue - I had always sang "guide us to that perfect sight", but in this book, we are being guided "to thy perfect light". Perhaps that is more correct?
 
Beautiful Artwork!  Dec 23, 2007
The words are simple from the song of "We Three Kings." The book is beautifully illustrated! My kids love it.

 
EXQUISITELY WROUGHT ILLUSTRATIONS  Oct 14, 2007

Russian born Gennady Spirin is one of the most gifted, imaginative artists working today. His illustrations are lush, rich, intricately detailed from the largest image to the smallest accouterment. Looking at some of the 30 books he has illustrated, it is as though one is looking at fine art. In fact, his works are found in private collections as well as museums throughout the world.

Mr. Spirin's awards are numerous - four gold medals from the Society of Illustrators, the Golden Apple from the Biennial of Illustrations Bratislava, and first prize at both the Bologna and Barcelona International Book Fairs.

First written in 1857 We Three Kings is one of our most beloved Christmas carols as it tells of the wise men's journey to visit the manger in Bethlehem. Done in watercolor and colored pencils, Mr. Spirin's paintings for this carol appear bathed in a golden light. All are full page and exquisitely wrought, an illustrated edition of this traditional Christmas song which is sure to become a family keepsake.
