About the Exhibition

Danforth Art is pleased to present an exhibition of illustrations from the book Boris and Stella and the Perfect Gift. In this child-oriented version of The Gift of the Magi, Boris wants to give something special to Stella for Christmas, and Stella wants to give Boris something special for Hanukkah. In the end, they each sell their most precious possessions to give each other the perfect gift.

“Every once in awhile a book comes along that reaches out and touches your soul.  In Boris and Stella and the Perfect Gift, author and illustrator Dara Goldman offers a gift to children everywhere replete with a timeless message of gratitude and generosity.”

                                                        Mark Pollick, President and Founder, The Giving Back Fund

Copies of Boris and Stella and the Perfect Gift make an excellent Hanukkah or Christmas gift, and will be available for purchase in our Museum store for the duration of the exhibit.
