Product Description

On a snowy Christmas Eve, on his way home from a family celebration, a young man named Thomas realizes the candle in his lantern is about to die out. He stops in a chandler's shop filled with fantastic wax creations, but instead of admiring them, Thomas scorns the chandler for wasting his time on sculptures that will only melt. The mysterious old chandler sells him a special Christmas candle. Back on the bitterly cold street, the young man is accosted by an old beggar woman. When he lifts his lantern to get a better look, the candlelight reveals that she is his mother. He gives her his cloak and only then sees the truth: She is not his mother after all, but a stranger. The candle tricks him again before he returns home, cold and penniless, but richer for his newfound realization that we are all part of one family.

This intriguing original fable about charity is accompanied by lavish, mood-filled oil paintings by artist Jacob Collins. Together, author and artist have created an exquisite holiday gift book that well be treasured by the entire family. Recommended for ages 4 and up.
