Bruce Little Blue Spruce by Kristen Simon, Jim Valentino


Bruce Little Blue Spruce by Kristen Simon, Jim Valentino

Just in time for the Holidays, this is a children's story for the child in all of us! All Bruce ever wanted was to be chosen by a special family to be their Christmas tree...but no one wants a BLUE Christmas tree! A heartwarming tale about accepting the differences in ourselves and in others, Bruce: The Little Blue Spruce is a story about alienation and individuality, about prejudice and rising above it. And maybe, most importantly, it's a story about finding one's place regardless of one's 'handicaps'. Engagingly written by Kristen Koerner Simon as a gift to her family, illustrated by Image Comics founder and award-winning artist Jim Valentino, with painted color by Avery Butterworth, Bruce: The Little Blue Spruce will charm even the most cynical of Scrooge's all year long, and gently teach a valuable lesson for all.
