The Animals' Christmas CarolBook - 2001
Based on a medieval French carol, Helen Ward's sumptuous Christmas book will tell of myriad animals who come to bestow their own special gifts on the newborn Christchild. From the lion and bear who guard the stable door, to the dove who coos a lullaby, Ward captures the tender, joyous spirit of the song in a series of exquisitely detailed paintings, enhanced throughout by the liberal use of a fifth color metallic gold. The book will also feature a guide to the animals, a technique made popular in her best-selling The Hare and the Tortoise.
