Pub. Date:
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.
