Praise for 12 Days of Christmas in New York…
“..a clever adaptation of the beloved Christmas carol….the book uses warm-hearted, whimsical illustrations to celebrate the 12 things that everyone loves about New York City at Christmas. You'd be hard-pressed to find turtledoves, French hens, and milk maids in this city, so instead the author captures the perfect New York City moments with staples like chestnut vendors, horse-drawn coaches, and the perennial sidewalk Santas to create a portrait of what the holiday season really feels like in the Big, Apple. 12 Days of Christmas in New York City gives a perfect impression of what it means to spend the holidays in the world's most famous city.” ~Quest Magazine
