Who needs a partridge in a pear tree when you could have a pup under a Christmas tree? Why choose four French hens when you could have four French bulldogs? Just the thing for dog lovers this charming picture book gives the old Christmas favourite a canine makeover, and great fun it is too. As more and more dogs pile into the scenes the excitement mounts until there’s a near riot on Christmas Eve! Luckily peace is restored for Christmas Day, just one pup again snoozing by his presents. The different scenes are full of variety and everyone will enjoy naming and counting the dogs, and picking out their favourites. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

The Twelve Dogs of Christmas by Alison Ritchie

The big day has almost arrived and one little puppy is very excited about his first EVER Christmas. But with three drooling Dalmatians, six sausage-snaffling Scotties and every dog in town helping out, the festive season is a shambles! Will everything be ready in time for Christmas Day?

Children will love picking their favourite dogs and spotting the puppy in busy scenes. This hilarious picture book is a great way to introduce children to Christmas traditions.
