An illustrated version of O. Henry's classic and touching story about generosity, with superb pictures. We suggest this little book as a slight, but perfect, Christmas book. It tells of the mutual love and self-sacrifice of a young married couple. It is about the best kind of gift giving, and of course, takes its title from the first Christmas gift givers, the three Magi or wise men. We illustrate the story with delicate line drewings by Steephen Gooden, first published in 1939.

    I love the little match girl because it has detail and the part that i think that is sad is when the little match girl dies cold as ice.
