The Gift of the Magi

by O. Henry Illustrated by Lisbeth Zwerger
This picture book version of one of the most famous Christmas stories ever written has been the most successful of Lisbeth Zwerger's books published in this country. Zwerger's simple, stark illustrations capture the human drama of O. Henry's story, in which a young husband and wife each sell a great treasure to buy the other a gift. A timeless reminder of how love matters more than any other human circumstance, this book captures the true spirit of Christmas.
