Description

A friend recommended it to me and it has made my husband and myself laugh each time we read it, and reading it will become a Christmas tradition at our house.

And who but Quentin Blake could exploit the full comic possibilities of this hilarious debacle as first birds, then maids and finally the full percussion section of the Liverpool Philharmonic create mayhem in the calm of an English country Christmas? Everyone knows the ‘Twelve Days of Christmas’, but not as rewritten by John Julius Norwich in this delightful correspondence, which records the daily thank-you letters from one increasingly bemused young lady to her unseen admirer. First edition thus hard back binding in publisher's original Devon cream cloth covers, scarlet title and author lettering to the spine. May also contain light spine creasing or a few markings such as an owner's name, short gifter's inscription or light stamp. They also considered that it was a way of dropping hints about the consequences of poorly idealised Christmas presents.FIRST EDITION 1998, small 8vo, 185 x 135 mm, 7¼ x 5¼ inches, pale yellow cloth, gilt vignette and lettering, pale violet endpapers, (32) pages. The monologue is performed by the reading out of letters written by Emily Wilbraham to her lover Edward.

It is an easy read and as a literacy tutor, I wanted something for the children to read in the run up to Christmas.

It was published by Atlantic Books and is based upon the Christmas carol " The Twelve Days of Christmas". It makes me laugh out loud every time I read it and I keep it out (not just for Christmas) to read through it occasionally.
