Gift of the Magi

Gift of the Magi Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One dollar and eight-seven cents is all the money Della has in the world to buy her beloved husband a Christmas present. She has nothing to sell except her only treasure — her long, beautiful brown hair. Set in New York at the turn of the twentieth century, this classic piece of American literature tells the story of a young couple and the sacrifices each must make to buy the other a gift. Beautiful, delicate watercolors by award-winning illustrator Lisbeth Zwerger add new poignancy and charm to this simple tale about the rewards of unselfish love.

Synopsis:

The classic holiday tale of love, devotion, and the art of giving--written by one of the world's best-known short-story authors--will delight those both new to and familiar with this timeless narrative.

Synopsis:

This classic holiday tale of devotion and the art of giving--written by one of the worlds best-known short-story authors--is now fully illustrated with lush, watercolor drawings that add new poignancy and charm to this simple tale about the rewards of unselfish love.

Synopsis:

An illustrated version of O. Henry's classic and touching story about generosity, with superb pictures. We suggest this little book as a slight, but perfect, Christmas book. It tells of the mutual love and self-sacrifice of a young married couple. It is about the best kind of gift giving, and of course, takes its title from the first Christmas gift givers, the three Magi or wise men. We illustrate the story with delicate line drewings by Steephen Gooden, first published in 1939.
