    A Personal Christmas Tradition

    I have made it a personal tradition at Christmas time to take time out, no matter how busy I am, to read "Gift of the Magi." After giving the old book (from which I always read this beautiful O.Henry story) to my daughter, I was a bit sad and missed the familiarity and history that particular book had for me. Then I found this new edition of the book at my favorite B&N store.

    P.J. Lynch's illustrations are exactly how my mind's eye has pictured this story for many years. It is beautiful. The story of love & selfless giving illustrated with lush style and imagination makes this book a pleasure each time I hold it in my hands. I'm also an e-book fan, but nothing can ever replace owning and reading this very lovely book.

    Wonderful Holiday Book

    This is the most beautifully illustrated version of the Gift of the Magi I have seen. I purchased at least a dozen copies to give as small gifts during the holidays. The hardbound version is the best. The story reminds us all that Christmas is about placing others above self.

    Beautiful drawings in this timeless classic

    I read this story many times in school however it wasn't until I picked up this copy to read that I realized I had only read adapted versions. The original story is so well told and full of beautiful language, I don't know why I only got the watered-down version. My children were able to understand the original and we all loved the gorgeous artwork in the story. I highly recommend this book to everyone.
