This illustrated edition of two heartfelt holiday fables abounds in the Yuletide traditions of generosity and friendship, perfect sentiments for a gift book. "The First Christmas Tree" is a tale set during an eighth-century winter festival, where a struggle ensues between foresters worshipping pagan gods and a heroic pilgrim who has come to teach them about Christ's birth. In "The Story of the Other Wise Man," well-meaning Artaban prepares to join three fellow Magi in their journey to Judaea for the birth of a holy prince. But a needy stranger and a twist of fate will change his destiny. These timeless classics will capture the hearts of every family that loves Christmas readings.
