The WISP series (short for Wonderfully Illustrated Short Pieces) represents an ingenious marriage of two creative forces: the artistry of today's foremost children's book illustrators and the literary legacy of beloved authors of popular short works for adults. The resulting offspring of this union are captivating, full-color illustrated editions of timeless classics that readers will want to savor and collect. This WISP presents O. Henry's classic Christmas tale, The Gift of the Magi, along with The Purple Dress, a story about a young lady who makes a personal sacrifice for the sake of her friend's happiness at a holiday party. Bringing these stories to life are the wondrous illustrations of Chris Raschka, a highly acclaimed illustrator, whose delightful artwork perfectly matches the tale. GIFT OF THE MAGI is sure to attract readers familiar with O. Henry's timeless holiday tales, as well as introduce a new generation of readers to his charming work. These one-of-a-kind, attractively priced and invitingly formatted illustrated editions will make a great impulse buy, appealing to audiences of all ages.
