A beautiful gift edition of the heartwarming story that became the Christmas classic,It's a Wonderful Life.

For almost seventy years, people the world over have fallen in love with Frank Capra's classic Christmas movieIt's a Wonderful Life. But few of those fans know that Capra's film was based on a short story by author Philip Van Doren Stern, which came to Stern in a dream one night.

Unable at first to find a publisher for his evocative tale about a man named George Pratt who ponders suicide until he receives an opportunity to see what the world would be like without him, Stern ultimately published the story in a small pamphlet and sent it out as his 1943 Christmas card. One of those 200 cards found its way into the hands of Frank Capra, who shared it with Jimmy Stewart, and the film that resulted became the holiday tradition we cherish today.

Now fans of It's a Wonderful Life, or anyone who loves the spirit of Christmas, can own the story that started it all in an elegant, illustrated edition that's perfect for holiday giving. It includes an Afterword by Stern's daughter, Marguerite Stern Robinson, that tells the story of how her father's Christmas card became the movie beloved by generations of people around the world.

Edith ("The Lonely Doll") struggles with the choice of a Christmas gift for Mr. Bear, finally realizing that something made by hand would be far better than something bought in a store. A knitted muffler seemed a perfect choice, especially since Edith, Mr. Bear and Little Bear are planning to spend the holidays with cousins Charles Bear and Albert Bear in the snowy hills of upstate New York. Edith knits whenever Mr. Bear isn't watching, hiding her project in a woven basket without realizing how much yarn she's been using. When the presents are opened on Christmas morning, Mr. Bear's gift is long enough for three bears! Edith is miserable about it, until she finds the perfect solution. She cuts the muffler into gifts for both Mr. Bear and his two cousins, and the day ends very happily.
