Description

Counter Display Pack with 6 copies of the cloth binding edition of My True Love Gave to Me: 9781770852310.

From a partridge in a pear tree to 12 drummers drumming, a beautifully illustrated celebration of the most festive time of the year.

One of the most popular holiday songs of all time, "The Twelve Days of Christmas" probably originated in France during the late Middle Ages and became popular in England as a chant sung without music. The 12 days are traditionally those following Christmas, with the last day being the end of the season. Over the years the lyrics have changed but the song remains a perennial favorite, recorded by everyone from Frank Sinatra to Alvin and the Chipmunks.

My True Love Gave to Me is an exquisitely illustrated edition of the song's famous lyrics, featuring the art of Scott McKowen, an award-winning illustrator and graphic designer. Each "day" is accompanied by a richly detailed-and often whimsical-full-page scratchboard illustration of its grand and unusual gift.

Populated by a partridge, turtle doves, French hens, calling birds, golden rings, geese, swans, maids a-milking, ladies dancing, lords a-leaping, pipers piping and drummers drumming, My True Love Gave to Me makes a perfect gift for yourself and those you love.
