Experience the Magic of Christmas...

It is Christmas Eve. An abandoned gray cat shivers alone in the cold, snowy forest. In a nearby farmhouse, a young boy worries that Santa Claus might not be able to come in such bad weather. But soon the bitter wind stops howling, and the sound of sleigh bells rings clearly through the woods. Neither the cat nor the boy knows it, but a small Christmas miracle is about to occur. Beloved illustrator Tasha Tudor's classic style gives this holiday tale a timeless appeal.

Efner Tudor Holmes comes by her talent naturally for, as Tasha Tudor's daughter, she was brought up in an atmosphere that encouraged creativity and a love of nature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful No one illustrates like Tasha Tudor and this book is yet another example of her exquisite work. Two brothers prepare for Christmas during a blizzard while a stray cat wanders the woods, searching for shelter. The juxtaposition of the howling wilderness of the winter storm and the warm home and company of the family evoke feelings of comfort and empathy by readers young and old. An enchanting tale that gives a new perspective on Christmas and all its beauty, both visible and unseen.
