Sly rhymes, quirky illustrations plus die-cut covers with holographic foil result in this holiday board book with an extra-special sparkle.
Doors have holly and
grown-ups have jolly;
Santas have wrinkles and
presents have crinkles.
In verse guaranteed to get readers to think twice and look twice, Harriet Ziefert romps through Christmas with rhymes designed to bring smiles to readers of all ages. Her text is perfectly matched in Rebecca Doughty s line drawings and bold palette, perhaps reminiscent of Edward Gorey s and Roz Chast s best work, but ultimately, uniquely, and irrepressibly her own.

Harriet Ziefert is a well-known author who has written over one hundred books for children. When she is not writing, she commutes between her homes in Lincoln, Massachusetts and Maplewood, New Jersey.
Rebecca Doughty is both a painter and the illustrator of several delightful books for children. Her artwork has been shown widely in museums and galleries in New England and New York. She lives and works in Lincoln, Massachusetts.
Holographic foil dresses up the die-cut window in two holiday titles by Harriet Ziefert and Rebecca Doughty. A pumpkin peers out from the cover on Halloween Has Boo! Within, just one silly couplet per spread ("Spiders have spin./ Pumpkins have grin") accompanies line drawings of cock-eyed characters. A trimmed tree decks the cover of Christmas Has Merry!
