CHRISTMAS CAROL by Sara Teasdale
CHILDREN'S
Released: Oct. 15, 1993

"An attractive addition for the Christmas shelf. (Poetry/Picture book. 2-7)"
Gottlieb's boldly contemporary art (see Melrose Cooper's I've Got a Family, p. 719) pairs surprisingly well with Teasdale's verse (c. 1937); though traditional in form, her poem has a concise directness and energy that match the artist's simple forms, broad lines of rough black, and assertive colors.
