Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

In Frost's spare prose poem, written in 1916 as a "Christmas circular letter," a city man offers to buy a farmer's woods of balsam fir to sell back in the city for Christmas trees. While the farmer seems to consider the offer and an anxious extended family watches from the house and porch, the two men walk the hillside estimating how many trees might be cut. The city fellow reckons there are about a thousand trees for which he'll pay $30. The farmer figures that at three cents a tree, he could just about mail one to each of his friends if he could get one in an envelope. The text lacks child appeal, but the poetry and illustrations do blend perfectly to re-create a quieter time in this century. Rand's paintings contrast the city man's rigid purposefulness with the rumpled and relaxed posture of the farmer while displaying the rusty colors of the late fall Vermont countryside to splendid advantage.

Format: Paperback
I could hardly believe my good fortune to find my favorite Robert Frost poem had been illustrated by my favorite illustrator! This is much better than another "kiddie book about reindeer" This is a book to read aloud and share with the extended family. What an introduction to real poetry for the younger ones! I would give it 10 stars if I could.
