Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this spirited reworking of the classic song “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” Joy has to deal with her first Christmas with a new baby brother—and nothing could be worse. He drools on the ornaments and ruins the presents, he eats all the cookies and smashes the snowmen, and hes on the verge of taking over the whole holiday. Joys patience runs out as the babys mishaps pile up. A sweet surprise turns the tables on Joy, who eventually appreciates what her baby brother adds to the holiday.

Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen and Ryan Wood pair perfectly for this funny holiday book with a sibling-appreciation message that will make readers laugh and sing along with every reading.

Review:

"Bardhan-Quallen has hold of a good concept: reworking the 'Twelve Days of Christmas' carol to demonstrate an older sibling's frustration with her baby brother, who is wrecking her holiday preparations; her countdown includes '6 shredded cards, 5 shattered ornaments, 4 sticky stockings,' and more. But lumbering couplets wedged between the accumulative verse drag down the story ('At night, Joy tried to leave out a plate for Santa Claus./ But all the cookies landed in Sam's jaws'). First-time illustrator Wood shows promise, making the most of Sam's mischief, portraying a gleeful toddler, a frustrated Joy, and a house in disarray. Ages 4 — 8."
