They put golden tinsel on his branches
And golden bells
And green icicles
And silver stars
And red and green and blue and purple chains of shining Christmas balls.
All alone in an empty field grew a little fir tree. It dreamed of being part of a forest-or part of anything at all. Then one winter day, a man takes the little fir tree away and it finds itself at the center of a little boy's very special celebration.
This treasured story by the legendary Margaret Wise Brown has been newly illustrated by award-winning artist Jim LaMarche. Warm, glowing paintings complement the gentle text to capture the true heart of Christmas.
Jim LaMarche is one of the most talented artists working in children's books today. His many successful books include "Rainbabies" by Laura Kraus Melmed and "Albert" by Donna Jo Napoli, which was selected as a New York Times Best Illustrated Book; and "Up" and "Raft", which he also wrote. Most recently he illustrated "The Carpenter's Gift" by David Rubel. Jim lives in Santa Cruz, California.
