Innocenti, from Florence, Italy, is the winner of several prestigious awards, among them the American Library Association Notable Childrern's Book, the Horn Book Honor List and the Bratislava Golden Apple Award. He has also won acclaim for his illustrations in other childrens books, including Rose Blance, Pinocchio, and Cinderella.

Of all of the Carols that we have offered during Gerald Dickens' American Holiday Tours, Roberto Innocenti's is certainly the most wonderfully crafted. The full-color illustrations are beautiful. The book is exquisitely designed and printed on top-of-the-line gloss paper. This is a book that will last and be cherished for years and years. Give an autographed copy to everyone you love. The books are particularly wonderful gifts for children and something they will retain and treasure.
