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 treasureand#8212;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:

It's Christmas Eve and Della has only $1.85 to buy her beloved husband a Christmas present. She has nothing to sell except her only treasure, her long, glorious hair. This warm story of love, sacrifice, and generosity is a perfect addition to any Christmas collection--for adults or children.

Synopsis:

A timeless reminder of how love matters more than any other human circumstance, this book captures the true spirit of Christmas.
