Jane Cabrera's signature animals celebrate Christmas with joy and love in this adaptation of the beloved holiday song. Her cheerful illustrations show magic mice, drumming dogs, skiing squirrels, and a whole crowd of festive creatures. Accompanying the colorful art and jolly text is sheet music set to Cabrera's lyrics.

Booklist Review: "The old English folk song gets new legs in this spirited adaptation that showcases the cutie-pie animals that have romped through other Cabrera books. The author's tweaking of the original lyrics (instead of a partridge in a pear tree, for example, her birds host a party in a pear tree) makes this more relatable to the youngest readers, while wizened older readers will enjoy the updates. Cabrera's joyful, naive-style paintings feature rounded, Chagall-inspired hills and crazy angles, along with cozy interiors and big-eyed, rosy-cheeked animals. Scenes are set both inside and outside; for example, 3 little kittens toast marshmallows on the hearth and enjoy hot chocolate, while later, 7 squirrels ski, 9 foxes sled, 10 snowmen sing, 11 reindeer dance, and 12 penguins ice skate. Cabrera ends the book with sheet music for the traditional song, plus the new lyrics. Devotees of other Cabrera renditions of popular nursery rhymes should be duly enchanted.--Fletcher, Connie Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Cabrera's jaunty spin on this traditional tune begins when a boy presents his "true love" with a "party in a pear tree"-a rainbow of birds wearing hats and crowns while grooving under a disco ball and joining together in a conga line. In successive wintry scenes, readers meet seven squirrels skiing, 10 snowmen singing, and 12 penguins skating before Santa whisks the boy and girl aloft for a "sleigh ride home." Creamy colors, rough-looking textures, and thick black outlines continue to be hallmarks of Cabrera's energetic acrylic artwork. Full lyrics and musical notation are included. Ages 2-5. (Oct.)
