For your consideration is a lovely copy of "Tomie dePaola's Book Of Christmas Carols", published by G. P. Putnamn's Sons, illustrations copyright 1987. The book is now out of print.
Tomie dePaola's love of Christmas and its traditions are evident in the magnificent illustrations he has created for these favorite carols. Vibrant, glowing paintings illuminate every page, and for six of the carols, a foldout page opens up to reveal the carol dramatically illustrated across three pages, in a triptych-like design.
