Overview


These are tales of Christmas past as only artist and "former kid" Bob Artley can paint them. With fond reminiscences and nostalgic full-color cartoons-and characteristic humor and insight-Bob takes us back to his life on the farm during the holidays.

The true spirit of the holiday returns in fond, old-fashioned style with these charming watercolors. Bob takes us to a long-ago Christmas down on the farm, where we join the family at Grandma's house, celebrate the season at the country school pageant, shop for presents in a country general store, and learn the secrets of Dad's workshop. His reminiscences amount to a Christmas card of goodwill, sharing his warmest memories-and making our own Christmas past, present, and future what we most dearly wish for.

Meet the Author


Growing up on a farm in Iowa, the young Bob Artley not only had prowess milking a cow but could skillfully draw any bovine's likeness with a pencil and paper. He went on to study art at Grinnell College and the University of Iowa before becoming an editorial cartoonist first at the Des Moines Tribune and later at the Worthington (Minnesota) Daily Globe newspapers. Artley's long-lived series of autobiographical drawings "Memories of a Former Kid" is his masterpiece and continues to be syndicated in daily and weekly newspapers. Born and raised near Hampton, Iowa, he now lives in Winter Haven, Florida.
