Over the River and Through the Wood
Lydia Maria Child’s beloved poem turned classic song embodies the magic of bundling up and riding a horse-drawn sleigh to visit Grandmother for Thanksgiving.
Set in the nineteenth century, this story features Christopher Manson’s indelible wood carvings, which capture the wonders of winter—such as sledding and ice-skating—and the Thanksgiving feast.
An exceptionally handsome treat.
Like the poem itself, this title promises to have wide and ageless appeal.

Full-page woodcuts in color recall the mid-19th century era when winter travel was by horse and sled. Other reminders of an earlier time are old-fashioned ice-skates, all-wood sleds, and of course, grandmother and grandfather preparing and serving dinner.
