One of the most well known holiday songs of all time, Irving Berlin's "White Christmas" depicts the dream of a perfect Christmas—one filled with snow. And in the hands of fantasy artist Michael Hague, it's also filled with snow fairies, reindeer, woodland creatures, sleigh rides, Santa Claus, and more. As you turn the pages and read the lyrics, you'll be swept away into a magical Christmas fairyland that is sure to make your holiday merry and bright.
The classic Yuletide ballad that has been spreading Christmas spirit since the 1940s is made new again in this enchanting holiday picture book with illustrations as fresh and beautiful as a winter snowfall.

Irving Berlin (1888-1989) was one of the most prolific American songwriters in history. Among his more than twelve hundred songs were "God Bless America," "Cheek to Cheek," "Anything You Can Do," "There's No Business Like Show Business," and, of course, "White Christmas." He also composed seventeen film scores and twenty-one Broadway scores. The songs of Irving Berlin have left an indelible mark on music and culture worldwide.
Michael Hague has illustrated more than thirty children's classics, including memorable editions of The Wizard of Oz, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Peter Pan, The Wind in the Willows, and The Secret Garden. He is also the artist of several bestselling books by his wife, Kathleen, including Alphabears, Numbears, and Ten Little Bears. The father of three grown children and the grandfather of four, Michael has a ready audience for all of his work.From School Library Journal:
K Up–Libraries do not need this disappointing excuse for an illustrated song book. The lyrics of the Berlin standard are illustrated with poor-quality Hague fairies in winter scenes that seem designed for the art resale market. The images are blurry and while skillfully done as one would expect, aggressively commercial and lacking in character. Plus, the paintings do not correspond to the text unless the Beverly Hills matron introduced in the opening verse used to live at the North Pole.Anne Connor, Los Angeles Public Library
