Take Joy! Tasha Tudor

WOW!

I have owned this book since I was a tot and it's still in fantastic condition, but I would never sell it because it means more to me than just a material possession.

I know it by heart.

Hi,
I haven't see this book, but am familiar with Tasha Tudor's illustrations of the Night Before Christmas. I guess you are a big fan? Can you tell us more about it?

It's illustrated with her signature watercolor style, soft colors but not cute-sy.

The illustrations go with stories, recipes, poems, short Christmas stories, by her and many others, even a snippett from Dickens.

she relates stories of her family farm and her family.

She is the original 'Martha'.
