9780060734664: The 12 Days of Christmas

In this festive rendition of the popular Christmas counting song, Vladimir Vagin captures the lavish Christmas celebrations of old with timeless elegance. His detailed, jewellike paintings reflect a unique mix of cultures: the medieval Russian flavor of his native land and the Vermont countryside of his adopted home. This exquisitely crafted parade of ladies, lords, pipers, and drummers is sure to become a cherished part of holiday merrymaking for generations to come. The book includes a musical arrangement and an afterword about the song's origin as a cumulative memory game.

Isobel Bushell is the illustrator of our other Musical Board Books: Santa Claus Is Coming to Town, Frere Jacques, and Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. Ms. Bushell lives in England.

From Booklist:

Vagin illustrates this traditional carol with detailed watercolors dominated by visual allusions both to his native Russia and to his present home in Vermont. A handsome couple wearing fur-lined cloaks and riding in an elegant sleigh evoke an air of old Russia; frozen ponds and waterwheels, snow-covered houses and barns speak vividly of New England. Each verse of the song is introduced in expansive double-spread paintings beautifully presenting the fanciful gifts. Scenes of a winter carnival show children with animal hats and masks and musical instruments having a wonderful time on a frozen pond. A piano arrangement is appended, along with a brief history of the song's origins as a game. Shelley Townsend-Hudson
