The Lovereading4Kids comment

The Twelve Days of Christmas is an important element of the Christmas celebrations and Anna Wright’s version is beautiful, original and witty. From the gorgeous partridge gazing out at us on the first page, bird and pears on the tree both embellished with gold brocade, to the twelve woodpeckers drumming on the trees in a snowy wood, animals feature for every one of the lines. Perhaps my favourite is the fifth day, when five handsome frogs twirl gold rings, or the eighth day, illustrated by a sow feeding her eight piglets. Young children will enjoy talking about the animals but this is full of appeal for older children and adults too. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

The Twelve Days of Christmas by Anna Wright

Anna Wright has rapidly developed a following across the UK for her print, collage work and paintings, following in the footsteps of Emma Bridgewater, Tricia Guild and Liberty as she takes her designs across stationery and homeware. She is now embarking on her third picture book for children.

Anna brings humour, beauty and sophistication to this perennially popular Christmas hymn, with her signature style. Exquisitely rendered in pen, ink, watercolour and collage, The twelve days of Christmas are beautifully and playfully reimagined for today's readership - and have never looked so sumptuous.

About the Author

Anna Wright is an artist and illustrator. Her rural upbringing, in Dumfriesshire, southwest Scotland, introduced her to flora and fauna, which alongside her love of interiors, fabrics and wallpaper have shaped her work. Since exploring these influences at Edinburgh College of Art, Anna has grown her trademark style of colour and humour, from her studios in London and Edinburgh.
