|The cover I have|
McGraw Hill | 1963 (most recent re-issue, 2000)
"Mr. Willowby's Christmas tree came by special delivery."
And so begins my absolute, hands-down, favorite Christmas story ever. For close to forty years, my family's copy has been pulled out, displayed, and read over and over again at Christmas.
|The 2000 cover|
Your kids will beg you to read it again and again and you just might find, after they've gone to bed and the house is quiet, that you pull it out one more time for a re-read all on your own. It's that lovely.
