One dark November night a stranger rides into a small prairie town. Who is he? Why has he come? The townspeople wish he were a doctor, a dressmaker, or a trader. But the children have the greatest wish of all, a deep, quiet, secret wish. Then a young girl named Lucy befriends the newcomer. When he reveals his identity and shares with her the legend of the candy cane, she discovers fulfillment of her wishes and the answer to her town's dreams. Now will she share what she has learned?
This newly illustrated edition of The Legend of the Candy Cane renews the wonder and charm of the original timeless tale written by Lori Walburg with vibrant artwork from Bad Dog, Marley illustrator, Richard Cowdrey, that brings this holiday classic to life for a new generation.
