In this spirited reworking of the classic song “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” Joy has to deal with her first Christmas with a new baby brother—and nothing could be worse. He drools on the ornaments and ruins the presents, he eats all the cookies and smashes the snowmen, and he’s on the verge of taking over the whole holiday. Joy’s patience runs out as the baby’s mishaps pile up. A sweet surprise turns the tables on Joy, who eventually appreciates what her baby brother adds to the holiday.
Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen and Ryan Wood pair perfectly for this funny holiday book with a sibling-appreciation message that will make readers laugh and sing along with every reading.

The Worst 12 Days of Christmas Children's book Review

Love! I really love the artistry. Neat to read this is the illustrators first children’s book. I hope he has many more. The story is great. I was concerned at first, but it goes well. A great family read, especially for that uncertain and new older sibling.

 

Ryan Wood is a concept artist and illustrator. This is his first picture book. He lives in Utah.
