Christmas in the Trenches

John McCutcheon, Author, Henri Sorensen, Illustrator , illus. by Henri Sørenson. Peachtree $18.95 (40p) ISBN 978-1-56145-374-0

Smooth and soulful, folksinger McCutcheon's picture-book adaptation of his 1984 song, inspired by true events of WWI, proves an uplifting holiday tale and an enduring anthem of peace. The story of German and Allied soldiers engaging in an impromptu Christmas truce on the battlefield is one not soon forgotten. Sørenson's (I Love You as Much... ) elegant oil landscapes and portraits capture the drama and power of the proceedings. The attractive package comes with a CD containing a narration of the story as well as the title recording and a bilingual rendition of the carol "Silent Night/Still Nacht." Ages 6-10. (Sept.)
