Description - Bob Artley's Country Christmas by Bob Artley

These 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.
