Feeling Festive with Alex T Smith

After an unusually challenging year it's comforting to know that Christmas is only a matter of weeks away. With eager young book worms to treat it's time to start our Christmas book wish lists, what better way to start the festive season than with a seasonally suitable picture book. In Iceland it's a long held tradition to present your nearest and dearest with a new book, this celebration is called Jolabokaflod, which translates roughly to “Christmas book flood” and we can't think of a better Christmas treat than a copy of The Twelve Days of Christmas by Alex T. Smith published by Macmillan Children's Books

The Twelve Days of Christmas is a lavishly illustrated Christmas classic re-imagined and illustrated by Alex T. Smith. On the first day of Christmas my Grandma sent to me . . . Grandma's presents may start off sensible – a partridge is easy enough to take care of – but her generosity soon gets wildly out of hand . . . The Twelve Days of Christmas: Or Grandma is Overly Generous is a witty new take on the festive classic The Twelve Days of Christmas, accompanied by beautiful full-colour illustrations, this is the perfect Christmas present for any child. Alex in his own words, says ‘The idea for this version of The Twelve Days of Christmas came to me when I found myself humming the tune and then struggling to remember what was gifted on which day. In the end I started to make it up and the result is this book.’
