About this title


Bestselling artist Sylvia Long brings the holidays to life in this beautifully illustrated edition of a beloved Christmas carol. Readers will delight in singing along with the familiar lyrics celebrating the joys of the seasondecorating the mantel, singing carols and sharing quiet moments with family. A wonderful gift, this lively carol and the rich details of Sylvia Long's illustrations combine perfectly to evoke the magic and warmth of this favorite time of year.


"Fa la la la la, la la la la." Ah, the sounds of Christmas! Bestselling illustrator of Sylvia Long's Mother Goose and Hush Little Baby, Sylvia Long embraces the holiday season with her tribute to the ever-popular carol, "Deck the Hall." Each two-page spread features, on the left side, two lines of the song beneath a festive decoration bordered by "fa-la-las." On the right side are detailed, original pen, ink, and watercolor illustrations of a joyful bunny family preparing for Christmas. Whether decking the halls with boughs of holly or donning their gay apparel, the merry rabbits celebrate with abandon. One of the most memorable scenes is when the young boy rabbit "troll[s] the ancient yuletide carol"--apparently at the top of his lungs, judging from the view he gives the reader of his crooning, wide-open mouth. For those who have always meaninglessly mumbled the words to this traditional carol, it's high time real attention be paid to this celebration of "the season to be jolly." (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter
