A truly Canadian Christmas carol is now available in a sturdy board book format!

This Canadian Christmas carol became an instant holiday classic. Now the whole family can join in the fun with this new, specially adapted board book version — the perfect first Christmas book for every preschooler on your list!

Enjoy all of Werner Zimmermann’s zany illustrations, count the characters from 1 to 12, and sing along. It’s Christmas as only Canadians can celebrate it — with squirrels curling, Mounties munching donuts, hockey players-a-leaping.... and A Porcupine in a Pine Tree!

A Porcupine in a Pine Tree: A Canadian 12 Days of Christmas

A hilarious cast of distinctively Canadian characters celebrate the Twelve Days of Christmas. It’s totally unique, eh? Where else do Mounties munch on donuts, squirrels enjoy a fine game of curling and hockey players mark the season as leafs-a-leaping?
