The twelve days of christmas

Britta Teckentrup has illustrated the traditional Christmas carol, The twelve days of Christmas, to produce a fun and interactive novelty book.

It is described on the cover as, ‘a peep-through picture book’. Each spread is a verse of the carol and as you turn each page the holes grow in size and quantity to reveal the next days gifts radiating out from the partridge in a pear tree at the centre. The final page shows all the gifts in no particular order, interspersed with gold snowflakes and stars.

The children will enjoy taking the time to study each page, count the gifts and admiring the tiny, digital artwork in pastel shades as they sing along to each page.

The book would make a lovely stocking filler for children aged between 2-7 years.
