Publishers Description "Silent night, holy night, All is calm, all is bright "It is a silent, snowy December night. Shopkeepers and country folk in the tiny Vermont village are hurrying everywhere, lighting candles, wrapping gifts, baking pies--getting ready. But for what? For Christmas Eve? Or is there more? The Miller family knows there is Pa and the boys, little Andy and Jamie, rush to the train station through the blizzardy twilight to pick up Grandma Stokes. Old Paul, the hired hand, rides to get Doc Herrick. Mama's quilty friend Tinker won't leave her side. They all know something truly wonderful is going to happen this Christmas Eve, snow or no snow, right here at Miller farm. In his unmistakable style, world renowned folk artist Will Moses brings Christmas to a Vermont village in an original story that the entire family--boys and girls, mothers and fathers, grandparents, aunts and uncles--can share by their own candlelight year after year.

More About Will Moses
Painting is as much a part of the Moses family tradition as the family homestead in Eagle Bridge, New York. There Will Moses has painted since he was a little boy, learning firsthand from his grandfather, folk artist Forrest Moses, who learned from his mother, Anna Mary Robertson Moses, better known as Grandma Moses. Developing his own folk style, Will has become an internationally beloved artist in his own right, his art displayed in collections throughout the world, including that of the White House.
His first picture book, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, a retelling of Washington Irving's famous tale, was published by Philomel in 1995.
Will Moses' studio is at the Mount Nebo Gallery and Farm in Eagle Bridge, where he lives with his wife, Sharon, and their three children.
Will Moses currently resides in Eagle Bridge, in the state of New York.
