Twelve Hidden Days of Christmas by Macky Pamintuan


Twelve Hidden Days of Christmas by Macky Pamintuan

Kids love searching for Christmas gifts and they can get a head start on the holiday with this joyful twist on the popular carol. You'll recognize most of the words from On the Twelve Days of Christmas , but instead of 'my true love' giving the presents, jolly Santa's leaving them all around the house. Sharp-eyed children accompany a curious little bear to look for St. Nick's cheerful handiwork - as well as some festive extras that artist Macky Pamintuan has playfully added to the art, including jingle bells, a candy cane in the toothbrush cup and bright snowflakes floating over the bathtub. As the items accumulate, the delight heightens, with ten frog lords a-leaping and sliding; nine pretty pink pig ladies dancing a ballet; and cow maids ready to do their milking. The best is saved for last in a big ending: a huge double gatefold that's four pages long, containing all the items delivered during the twelve days.
