"My Dearest Darling - "
"That partridge, in that lovely little pear tree! What an enchanting, romantic, poetic present! Bless you and thank you. "
"Your deeply loving Emily"
Everyone knows the "Twelve days of Christmas," but not as rewritten by John Julius Norwich in this delightful correspondence, which records the daily thank-you letters from one increasingly bemused young lady to her unseen admirer. And who but Quentin Blake could exploit the full comic possibilities of this hilarious debacle as first birds, then maids, and finally the full percussion section of the Liverpool Philharmonic create mayhem in the calm of an English country Christmas?
The classic Christmas carol, told with a very special twist... With inimitable illustrations by Quentin Blake, this is the most elegant and enchanting Christmas gift book of the year.
