Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Twelve Days of Christmas is sung in churches, houses, and concert

halls throughout the Christmas season. It would be hard to imagine a

Christmas celebration without it. From the partridge in the pear tree

to the five golden rings to the twelve drummers drumming, carolers enjoy

taking turns singing different verses. Gennady Spirin's sumptuous paintings

bring new life and spectacular beauty to this classic song, making it a gift

to be treasured at Christmastime. An Illustrator's Note is included which

addresses the song's origin and history.

Review:

"Delicate, ornamental images in colored pencil and watercolors, set in egg-shaped frames, accompany the lyrics to the holiday carol. The scenes are cumulative: French hens and turtle doves join the partridge in the pear tree, which is pictured in an ornate urn. Spirin offers several whimsical touches (the tree's urn sports wings on the first page, and the 'Four Calling Birds' are parrots with exotic plumage). Little by little, more of the foreground emerges, until the organized chaos appears in full splendor with elegant pipers, lords, ladies and milking maids, all. An artfully traditional interpretation. Ages 4 — 8. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
