Called la flor de la Nochebuena -- the flower of the Holy Night -- in Mexico, the poinsettia blooms at Christmastime, the symbol of a little girl's unselfish gift to the Christ Child. With glorious paintings that capture not only the brilliant colors of Mexico but also the magic and excitement of the season, Tomie dePaola imbues the tale with his own special feeling for Christmas.
