Description

The author-illustrator behind Wildflower and The Book of Selkie brings her naturalist's eye to the classic song, "The Twelve Days of Christmas", in this gorgeous giftbook edition.

A boldly illustrated gift edition of the beloved English Christmas carol "The Twelve Days of Christmas" — with an artful twist. East Coast artist Briana Corr Scott brings her naturalist's eye to the classic holiday song, pairing the original lyrics with bold and whimsical illustrations that celebrate flora and fauna.

A kaleidoscope of Monarch butterflies on milkweed flowers is Eight maids a milking; a bloom of ladybugs atop pincushion flowers is Nine ladies dancing. Six geese a laying are bordered by bright red Christmas cacti, and Five golden rings are found nestled in a magpie's nest.

Influenced by botanical maximalism, this ornate and lushly illustrated, vintage-inspired book would be just at home on the shelves of a Victorian parlour or in the lap of a toddler.

Includes an author's note and informative backmatter.
