Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With luminous artwork full of elaborate detail, the acclaimed Jane Ray brings new life to a classic holiday song.

In this lushly illustrated interpretation of the familiar Christmas carol, each spread offers surprises for the eye as nostalgic city scenes depict a multiethnic cast of characters bustling with packages and sprucing up their homes for the holidays. But at one home in particular, an endless succession of gifts keeps arriving: birds of all stripes, ladies dancing aboard a brightly bedecked boat, lords leaping on rooftops, and pipers piping up and down stairs. Filled with intricate patterns and whimsical flourishes, Jane Ray's gorgeous artwork is the perfect match for this wonderfully cumulative tale.

Review:

"Ray brings a 1920s aesthetic to this classic carol with her elegant tableaus. A scarlet-haired young woman, who lives in a brownstone building on a busy riverside street, receives daily unexpected deliveries, care of her true love. As the snow falls outside, her gentle aviary grows (not appearing the slightest bit inconvenienced, she slumbers surrounded by six geese a-laying). Nine ladies dressed in furs and cloche hats dance the Charleston as they pass by on a festive boat, and on the 12th day, the woman's true love arrives carrying a single rose. A finely detailed and nostalgic interpretation. Ages 3 — 6. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
