An instant holiday classic. A happy little Christmas miracle.
Even after more than 20 years since his death, pop culture icon, painter, host, and teacher Bob Ross has never been more heralded than he is today. His memorable quotes, friendly face, and signature hairstyle grace merchandise and memes around the world. But the greatest things that make Bob as beloved as he is are, ultimately, his core values and his peaceful, joyful demeanor that encouraged his students and viewers to not only appreciate their natural talents but to appreciate the natural world around them.
Bob was, in many respects, the embodiment of the classic holiday spirit which encourages peace on Earth and good will toward men. Now, for the first time and inspired by the classic Clement C. Moore story, this fully authorized tale of a painter and his little squirrel friend on a cold winter night pairs Bob Ross' most beautiful wintertime landscapes with a meditation on embracing your inner creativity, the beauty of nature, and the feelings of peace, friendship, and harmony that blanket the entire holiday season like a happy little snowfall.
Perfect for families, fans, and painters of all ages, Bob Ross’s Happy Little Night Before Christmas is the perfect addition to any holiday tradition.
