In this exquisite edition, Jan Brett creates a joyous illustration for each of the twelves extravagant Christmas gifts a suitor gives to the lady he loves. Look carefully in the borders and see a mother and father riding into the snowy woods for their Christmas tree, which they take home for the family to fill with bright-colored Christmas balls, gingerbread boys, strings of popcorn and cranberries, and more. In the bottom of the borders, "Merry Christmas" appears in eleven languages, ending with a "Happy New Year" on the twelfth day.
