I received a signed copy of this as a win from First Reads on GoodReads.

When I first got it in the mail I flipped through fairly quickly, smiling at the art and the Canadian items that were given and I thought it was very cute.

A Moose in a Maple Tree by Troy Townsin is an alternative version of the 12 days of Christmas. Instead of birds Mr. Townsin uses Canadian traditions and animals.

I recently received a copy of A Moose In A Maple Tree, The All-Canadian 12 days of Christmas, by Troy Townsin and illustrated by Jennifer Harrington, for winning a drawing on Goodreads. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this original rewriting of the Twelve Days of Christmas. The writing is witty and the illustrations are fun and show off the beauty that is Canada. If you are looking for a new waya to enjoy the Twelve Days of Christmas, I can readily recommend Troy Townsin's A moose In A Maple Tree.
