Publisher's Description

“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.”
The New York Times
 
The astounding talent of Laurel Long brings this beloved song to life with breathtaking style. Set against a lush countryside, each day brings a new gift elegantly rendered. And like in the verses of the song, the previous gifts are repeated in every illustration, giving this striking artwork a hidden aspect, culminating in a staggering spread featuring them all. Readers will pore over every page, searching for golden rings, turtledoves, and all the rest, secretly tucked into each stunning painting.

Laurel Long's unparalleled style makes this exquisite volume a treasure that will be cherished for years to come.
 
“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
