Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

and#147;Hereand#8217;s a song whose lyrics everyone knows and that therefore demands something spectacular to distinguish it. This version, sumptuously illustrated by Long, certainly delivers.and#8221;

and#151;The New York Times

and#160;

The astounding talent of Laurel Long brings this beloved song to life with breathtaking style. Set against a lush countryside, each day brings a new gift elegantly rendered. And like in the verses of the song, the previous gifts are repeated in every illustration, giving this striking artwork a hidden aspect, culminating in a staggering spread featuring them all. Readers will pore over every page, searching for golden rings, turtledoves, and all the rest, secretly tucked into each stunning painting.

Laurel Long's unparalleled style makes this exquisite volume a treasure that will be cherished for years to come.

Review:

"In a book that's part elegant tapestry, part seek-and-find game, Long (The Magic Nesting Doll) expertly weaves religious and secular images into a visually arresting interpretation of the traditional carol. A princess-maiden who wends her way through a lush, mystical forest toward a castle is but one of the story lines eagle-eyed readers can follow as they pore over the intricate, delicately framed oil paintings; gifts from earlier scenes reappear and accumulate throughout, resulting in French hens tucked among poinsettias and milkmaids transformed into foliage. Iconic angels, knights leaping on horseback, and ladies in luxurious, shimmering gowns are among the memorable scene-stealers. Ages 3 — 5." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
