Twelve-year-old Job lived on a mountain in the Catskills with his grandfather. One December Christmas Eve, when his grandfather had gone to town leaving Job to care for the cow and chickens, a snowstorm arrived, preventing his grandfather's return. Sitting in front of the fire, Job is visited by numerous fairies, who tell him wonderful stories of the world. Upon his grandfather's return, Job is not quite sure - did it actually happen or had he dreamed it? This is a wonderful story of imagination, beautifully written and illustrated. Originally published in 1876.
