Add this nostalgic story to your holiday collection. “This classic holiday tale of devotion and the art of giving is now fully illustrated with lush watercolor drawings that add new poignancy and charm to Henry’s simple tale about the rewards of unselfish love.” (annotation) O. Henry’s classic tale of the wisest gifts of Christmas brought to life by P.J. Lynch’s extraordinary art is itself a gift to share and treasure. “In a shabby New York flat Della sobs as she counts the few coins she has saved to buy a Christmas present for her husband Jim. A gift worthy of her devotion will require a great sacrifice: selling her long beautiful hair. Jim meanwhile has made a sacrifice for Della that is no less difficult. As they exchange gifts on Christmas Eve the discovery of what each has done fills them with despair until they realize that the true gifts of Christmas can be found more readily in their humble apartment than in any fine store. O. Henry paints a masterly portrait of unfaltering love a haven from the harsh world outside. The poignancy of his story is captured in P.J. Lynch’s eloquent wherein every glance every gesture tells a subtle truth.”(publisher) Ages 10 and up 40 pages
