Bob Artley's Country Christmas by Bob Artley
Book DescriptionThese 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.
