The carefully wrapped present was perched half-hidden on his parents' closet shelf. Arthur, a little boy with a very large imagination, feverishly tried to guess what it might contain. A pet? A shiny trumpet? A new computer? The possibilities were almost endless. All for him and him alone—until the doorbell interrupted his reverie. What happened next is a remarkable and soul-satisfying reminder that the act of sharing is perhaps the greatest present of all. A simple and timeless tale of spontaneous generosity, told with understated humor, a great warmth and a brilliantly direct graphic stylewhich go to the very heart of the human experience. With the gentle insight of A Cup of Christmas Tea and the resonant innocence of The Giving Tree, Bob Gill's book is destined to become a best-loved gift about gift-giving.
Brooklyn-born Bob Gill's work as an artist and graphic designer has spanned continents; his genius has been stamped on a wide range of creative endeavors, from children's books and award-winning international ad campaigns to Beatlemania.He lives in New York City.
