Audiobook

A down-to-earth version of a heavenly tale.

Jack and the Manger retells the story of Jesus’s birth as if it were a Newfoundland folktale. It’s all seen through the eyes of Jack, the hero of many a story, who befriends a young couple on their walk to Bethlehem. There’s a bit of ‘angel talk’, some gravel pit camping, an edge-of-your-seat birth drama, and the low-down on how Caesar Augustus’s ‘count-and-tax plan’ brought them all together.

Gentle, playful and very funny, Jack and the Manger is the second in an on-going print series of Jack tales, written by Andy Jones, one of Newfoundland’s finest storytellers and actors, and the first produced as an audio book. It was a Christmas sensation in St. John’s when it was first performed, and is sure to please even the most Grinch-like of readers.

This audiobook was recorded and produced by award-winning audio-documenatry maker Chris Brookes at Battery Radio Studios in St. John's, NL, and features music by acclaimed Newfoundland fiddler Christina Smith.

"Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

Birgitta Johansson

"Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."

"Jag och min man delar familjeabonnemanget och har haft Storytel i 5-6 år. Vi är så nöjda med både appen och Readern. Här finns ett stort bokutbud som passar oss båda!"
