A true story - one Great Depression Christmas Eve Grandpapa Alexandre had no money to buy his family a tree for Christmas; his creativity and Christmas spirit helped make a merry Christmas for his children a reality.
I have been looking on, this evening, at a merry company of children assembled round that pretty German toy, a Christmas Tree. The tree was planted in the middle of a great round table, and towered high above their heads. It was brilliantly lighted by a multitude of little tapers; and everywhere sparkled and glittered with bright objects.
Never before published, A Partridge in a Pear Tree wasn't intended as a commercial venture. Artist Charley Harper perhaps with his wife, Edie, also an artist created the fun little book for his family. A playful riff on the traditional Yuletide carol "The Twelve Days of Christmas," Partridge is the kind of whimsy an artist dashes off while relaxing around the fireplace and that's the beauty of it. With its pastel sketches and humorous text, this sweet take on a holiday classic provides an intimate look at Harper's fun-loving personality.
In a tiny little village blanketed with snow, Gregory Mouse is ready to ring in the holidays This adorable fellow, whom readers may recognize from Mary Engelbreit's "The Night Before Christmas," shares Christmas carols, sleigh rides, and gingerbread houses with his family and all the friends they've made in their new woodland home. As Christmas Eve draws near, they welcome readers to join them in celebrating the joys of the season.
Starting with the angel atop the family tree, this playful Christmas alphabet is Mary Engelbreit at her exuberant best.
