With art so stunning it glistens like freshly fallen snow, this cozy Christmas tale is an essential treasure for anyone celebrating the holiday season!

Bursting with gorgeous illustrations that accompany the lyrics to this classic carol, the festive artwork and jolly characters capture all the merriment of the popular Yuletide tune. Randall’s style feels charmingly classic while also strikingly contemporary, making this particular partidge in a pear tree the perfect one for the modern reader. The joyful pictures and beloved song are sure to make this a recurring holiday favorite.

A festive picture book worth picking up! Featuring the lyrics for the Christmas classic, The Twelve Days of Christmas, Emma Randall's illustrations bring this beloved song to life. Each page features the next part to the song, along with bright illustrations to match the words. It will be hard reading this book without singing the lyrics out loud. I really like that the illustrations had a beautiful eastern European feel to them. This book is a cheerful holiday picture book that will be treasured for years to come. 
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
