ALL ABOARD FOR CHRISTMAS

Author: Christopher Jennison

When we were children--at least in our imaginations--it always snowed at Christmas, the trains were always on time, and at the end of our holiday journeys grandparents always awaited us with smothering hugs and piles of presents. Few childhood images are more enduring than Christmas and trains. This heartwarming book of stories, poems, and pictures brings back joyous memories of holiday train rides, wondrous homecomings, and clicking toy trains beneath the tree.

In the spirit of Norman Rockwell and Frank Capra, Jennison evokes the enchantment of bygone Christmases in the era of train travel. Vintage magazine covers from Railroad, The New Yorker, and The Saturday Evening Post; Minnie and Mickey Mouse in Christmas attire aboard a train; and original Lionel Train advertisements dating from the 1950s are only a few of the nostalgia-filled images, many never before published, that illustrate this Yuletide anthology. All Aboard for Christmas is a delightful gift book and stocking stuffer for lovers of this holiday and its customs.
