A gentle old carpenter who has spent his whole life in the service of others has finally begun to build his own home in a quiet meadow, with nothing but a small reindeer to keep him company. Finishing by winter seems like an impossible task, but the carpenter reaps the years of kindness he has sown, and his neighbors return his love by helping complete his new home by Christmas. He has a wonderful surprise in store for them, making this Christmas one that everyone will cherish forever.
Trisha Romance is perhaps this country's best-loved artist. She has created a whole world in her warm, detailed pictures. Celebrating family love and devotion, her legion of admirers feel they know her, her graceful home, and her beautiful children.
A Star for Christmas is Trisha Romance's first book for children. She tells a story -- inspired by people who are dear to her and a real reindeer, Star, who lives in Anchorage, Alaska -- that had "been on her heart" long before she set it down to share with children.
