Booklist Review

Ages 4^-7.Ring in the Christmas season with a new rendition of a favorite, centuries-old carol. Set in the olden times of kings, queens, maidens, and lords, the tale is about a young lord who gives many unusual gifts to his lady. On single pages that extend to double-page spreads, and ultimately fold out into a six-page-long illustration featuring the merry festivities of the final night of the 12-day celebration, paper collages in bold, rich colors show the increasing number of gifts presented. Musical notes and lyrics complete the visually attractive book. As they sing along, children will delight in counting the many presents that appear on each page.--April Judge
