Description

One dark November night a stranger rides into a small prairie town. Who is he? Why has he come? The townspeople wish he were a doctor, a dressmaker, or a trader. But the children have the greatest wish of all, a deep, quiet, secret wish. Then a young girl named Lucy befriends the newcomer. When he reveals his identity and shares with her the legend of the candy cane, she discovers fulfillment of her wishes and the answer to her town's dreams. Now will she share what she has learned? Warm, lavish illustrations by James Bernardin bring to life a timeless tale by Lori Walburg, a story that will help families celebrate the mystery and miracle of Christmas—for many Christmases to come.

        November 12, 2001
        This animated video, inspired by the 1997 picture book of the same name, introduces children to the Christian symbolism behind a popular Christmas confection. The dusty, nearly deserted town of West Sage gets a bit shaken up when a stranger named John Sonneman arrives (along with a young companion named Matthew) and announces his plans to stay. Sonneman begins restoring a rickety storefront so that he can open up shop—but the town folk aren't sure what kind of shop. Turns out Sonneman is a candy man and he lets young Jane in on his secret while also telling her all about the origin of the peppermint, red-and-white-striped candy canes people have come to associate with Christmas over the years. While the legend is an interesting one, with special appeal to Christian viewers, it gets buried in this expanded version of the tale. Too many characters and too much meandering exposition at the outset may have younger viewers wondering if the candy cane will ever make its entrance. Veteran actors Florence Henderson, Tom Bosley, Ossie Davis and Malcolm-Jamal Warner all give solid vocal performances. But, unfortunately, the excellent cast seems lost in the uneven story line.FYI:
        The Legend of the Candy Cane will air on PAX-TV on November 22 and also on December 22.

        A stranger opens a candy store in town and introduces people to the candy cane. He explains about the candy's religious significance: for example, the red stripes represent the blood Jesus shed. The new illustrations for this edition have some appeal, but the lengthy text is weak. A brief history of the candy cane and speculations on the possible source of the religious interpretation are appended.
