Deep in the forest, there lived a beautiful little fir tree who longed to see the world. When the tree is taken to town at Christmas, it feels like all his dreams have come true. But what will happen the day after? Find out in this beautifully illustrated modern retelling of Hans Christian Andersen's festive tale. When he was surrounded by the splendor of nature, the little fir tree could only think about what he wasn't and what he didn't have and couldn't see. After the initial excitement of venturing out, though, he finds that the world isn't quite what he expected . As the story of the little fir tree unfolds--brought to enchanting life with the colorful, folk art-inspired artwork of acclaimed author/illustrator Christopher Corr--so does a touching lesson on appreciating what we already have and a hopeful message of rebirth .
