Item description for The Gift Of The Magi (Aladdin Picture Books) by Lisbeth Zwerger & O. Henry...

A young man and a young woman sell their most prized possessions to buy each other Christmas gifts, in this famous tale of unselfish love

Publishers Description
One dollar and eight-seven cents is all the money Della has in the world to buy her beloved husband a Christmas present. She has nothing to sell except her only treasure--her long, beautiful brown hair. Set in New York at the turn of the twentieth century, this classic piece of American literature tells the story of a young couple and the sacrifices each must make to buy the other a gift. Beautiful, delicate watercolors by award-winning illustrator Lisbeth Zwerger add new poignancy and charm to this simple tale about the rewards of unselfish love.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Gift Of The Magi (Aladdin Picture Books)?

The GIft of The Magi  Jan 19, 2008
This is a marvelous Christmas story about giving all that you have to the one that you love just as the Magi did so long ago. It is a classic written by O'Henry and the illustrations are magnificent.
Touching Story!  Jun 24, 2006
When I get married, that's how I hope I will be to my wife! This is a beautiful Christmas story that embodies the spirit of giving.

I remember finding this story once in picture edition and loved the illustrations but can't seem to be able to find it. Either way, this is a wonderful story of serving others and of what is really important.
Sweet story - cute size.  Dec 16, 2003
"Gift of the Magi" is a wonderful story (my favorite by O. Henry), and this little book makes a great stocking stuffer for the little ones. I recommend.
An encouragement, exquisite story  Apr 15, 2002
The Gift of Magi is an O. Henryfs classic Christmas story that is about a couple, Jim and Della, who loved each other. They were very poor people, but they wanted to buy a Christmas gift for each other. They did not have enough money, so they decided to sell their important things to buy a gift. Della wanted to buy a gold chain for Jimfs gold watch, but she didnft have enough money. Instead, she cut her hair that was her pride, and sold it. And Jim, whose watch was great and really expensive, sold it to buy the combs that Della had wanted for a long time. So as a result, their Christmas day was not happy at all. This storyfs ending is not happy, but I like this storyfs classic theme and plot. I think that this book has good theme and plot though they are simple. This is interesting and a well organized story. We can learn cultures of American from reading O. Henryfs short stories about Americanes.
Review for:GIFT OF THE MAGI, O. Henry  Apr 3, 2001
The Gift of the Magi is heavily laced with details, but has a good plot. The plot is easy to follow, and is beautifully detailed in just the right parts. The plot has been adapted in different versions, so it isn't the BEST idea in the world, but it has good morals. I would give this 4 stars out of a possible 5.
