Editorial Reviews

"Here’s a song whose lyrics everyone knows and that therefore demands something spectacular to distinguish it. This version, sumptuously illustrated by Long, certainly delivers." — New York Times

"Ms. Long has secreted lyrical clues within each picture that children will relish hunting down." — The Wall Street Journal

* "Long expertly weaves religious and secular images into a visually arresting interpretation of the traditional carol." — Publishers Weekly, starred review

"An accomplished visual interpretation with a playful element for children to enjoy." — Booklist

"This version has a dreamy, fairy-tale sensibility." — Kirkus

"Long’s lyrical and lush oil paintings, reminiscent of Russian icon art, combined with a tricky interactive element, make this version of the traditional carol special." — School Library Journal

"This book is a beautiful introduction to the song for young children; an engaging book for older children; and a book that makes those already familiar with the traditional song more thoughtful." — WNY Family Magazine
