Synopsis

Synopsis

With luminous artwork full of elaborate detail, the acclaimed Jane Ray brings new life to a classic holiday song.

In this lushly illustrated interpretation of the familiar Christmas carol, each spread offers surprises for the eye as nostalgic city scenes depict a multiethnic cast of characters bustling with packages and sprucing up their homes for the holidays. But at one home in particular, an endless succession of gifts keeps arriving: birds of all stripes, ladies dancing aboard a brightly bedecked boat, lords leaping on rooftops, and pipers piping up and down stairs. Filled with intricate patterns and whimsical flourishes, Jane Ray's gorgeous artwork is the perfect match for this wonderfully cumulative tale.

Praise

A dazzling accomplishment.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

It's a snowy, festive morning when a partridge and pear tree arrive by deliveryman at the front door of a beautiful young woman. Ms. Ray's mixed-media pictures are suffused with peachy-pinks and rosy-reds, giving the pages an edible, sugar-plummy feel.
—Wall Street Journal
