The classic Christmas song reimagined! All of the characters in the song are depicted as animals in the illustrations and the readers are invited to giggle as the poor partridge is pushed out of his pear tree and bombarded with the other characters’ dancing, leaping, piping etc. Overall, a funny take on a beloved seasonal favorite.

animal version of the 12 days of Christmas. Fun to read and sing with kindergarten, who hollered that it wasn't a maid milking but cats so we sang it that way. Also fun to change the words for the partridge falling off the tree and other places he goes.
