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.
