Baker & Taylor Presents an anthology of Christmas stories, poems, and carols.
Independent Publishing Group
Christmas has always been one of Michael Foreman's favorite themes, and this, his own remarkable Christmas Treasury, marks a marvelous coming-together of his most memorable work and his favorite prose and verse. This enchanting anthology of stories, poems, carols, and other Yuletide gems are all depicted by the artist in a vivid gallery of glittering presents and decorations, juicy turkeys and steaming puddings, frosty Christmas trees and snowy landscapes. Among the 27 pieces is a moving episode from his award-winning book, War Game?an account of Christmas in the trenches during the First World War?and his contrastingly jolly version of The Night Before Christmas. There are also works that he loved as a boy, like Robert Louis Stevenson's Christmas by the Sea, The Snowman by Hans Christian Andersen, and A.A. Milne's poem Outdoor Song, all brought to life as never before in his charming illustrations. A true classic to be enjoyed by readers of all ages.
