Overview

A classic picture book with a poignant message for both young and old, beautifully presented by an award-winning illustrator
 
Annie's grandfather carves the Little Drummer Boy from the leg of an old oak table as a Christmas gift for his small granddaughter. Throughout the rest of her life, this most beloved decoration of Annie’s travels the world with her and always hangs on the Christmas tree at her house, close to the top. Years pass—seasons and fashions come and go—and Annie has children and grandchildren of her own, but the pair remain together. The two live a long, fulfilling life together; however, as they age, they both start to fade. Annie doesn't mind. In this heartwarming story of love, life, and the tolls that both can take, she just puts that down to being well loved.
