Don Daily's "Gifts of Christmas" is an impeccably beautiful anthology, and is an absolutely essential book to own for all those who delight in the magic of Christmas!

This book is simply enchanting, and contains three adaptations of some of the most beloved Christmas classics including: E.T.A Hoffman's "The Nutcracker," Margery Williams' "The Velveteen Rabbit," and a delightful rendition of the traditional carol "The Twelve Days of Christmas."

More than half of the pages in this book contain FULL page illustrations that are strikingly beautiful and reflect painstaking attention to detail. The vivid colours and masterful quality leave readers breathless in anticipation for the next page!

This is a wonderful book to own for both children and parents alike. It is extremely rare to find such a delightful collection of stories that not only manages to capture its reader's heart and imagination, but also fills its reader with the spirit of Christmas!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Robin Muller's Finest, March 17 2010
Ce commentaire est de: The Nightwood (Hardcover)
Since it was first published in 1991, "The Nightwood" has ranked among the top most treasured children's books ever to have been written.

While Muller's storytelling talent is captivating, it is his luminous artistry that makes this book so extraordinary and compliments his writing in such an enchanting manner. His strikingly beautiful illustrations reflect painstaking attention to detail, and leave readers breathless in anticipation for the next page.

Based on the Celtic ballad of Tamlynne (a.k.a. Tam Lin), "The Nightwood" tells the haunting tale of a young woman's encounter with the mystical realm of the elves. There she falls in love with an enchanted Elfin knight whom she must rescue from a terrible curse. Filled with supernatural elements, magic, fairies and a trial that proves the strength of mortal love, Robin Muller truly proves himself a literary master in the realm of children's books.

It is very exciting that after going out of print several years ago this hard to find story has finally been re-released!

A MUST have for all young readers! Whether you're a fan of Robin Muller's works, or simply enjoy magical tales, this is undoubtedly the book you've been waiting for! It is exceptional and unparalleled in every way...you will not regret it!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Essential Nutcracker Experience!, July 20 2009
Ce commentaire est de: Nutcracker (Hardcover)
This book is simply enchanting! A lovelier adaptation of the "Nutracker" could not have been written! Not only are the illustrations breathtakingly beautiful, but the accompanying audio (narration combined with splendid excerpts from Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Ballet) brings the story to life, and captures the reader's heart and imagination with overwhelming emotion. This is a wonderful book for both children and their parents. Hoffman's "Nutcracker" has the power to transport you back to your own childhood through her spellbinding storytelling talent!

It is an absolutely essential book to have for all those who delight in the magic of Christmas!
