A gorgeously illustrated Christmas classic re-written and illustrated by Alex T. Smith, The Twelve Days of Christmas, or Grandma is Overly Generous, is the creator of the Claude series and How Winston Delivered Christmas.

On the first day of Christmas my Grandma sent to me . . .

Grandma's presents may start off sensible – a partridge is easy enough to take care of – but her generosity soon gets wildly out of hand . . .

The Twelve Days of Christmas: Or Grandma is Overly Generous is a witty new take on the festive classic The Twelve Days of Christmas, accompanied by beautiful full-colour illustrations, this is the perfect Christmas present for any child.

 

Review

The perfect Christmas present for kids of all ages - I hope there's one under the tree for me! -- Nina Pottell - Prima Published On: 2020-12-01

A seasonal classic gets a new twist with a touch of Christmas chaos and beautiful illustrations. -- Charlotte Heathcote - The Express Published On: 2020-11-22

Smith's precision-tooled cartooning and madcap sense of fun, which have helped make his Claude series a hit, never fail to delight -- James Lovegrove - The Financial Times Published On: 2020-12-01

For young readers, it’s a thoroughly modern and joyful update on the traditional Christmas carol - The Evening Standard

This is hands down our favorite re-told classic Christmas book of 2020. My daughter loves the 12 days of Christmas and Alex has created such a fun twist on the song. Grandma’s presents start off fairly tame, but they soon get a bit out of control! The illustrations are absolutely spectacular and it’s great to see a little girl of color as the star of this fabulous Christmas book - Picture Book Perfect

Keep your eyes peeled for the fabulous details in the illustrations which capture the bonkers mayhem just brilliantly, in the true Alex T Smith style. A great one for Jolabokaflod gifting on Christmas Eve - My Book Corner

This gorgeously illustrated, warm and witty reimagining of the classic song comes packed with festive fun, madcap antics and brilliant eye-catching illustrations. With mishaps and misadventures, a wonderful creative twist on an old classic, and bright and bold illustrations to enjoy, this captivating Christmas cracker is the perfect gift for your little ones - Lancashire Evening Post

Review

This made me SHRIEK with delight. Sly visual humour, unexpected departure, death-drop punchline - sheer delight in reworked Christmas carol form (and the fact that we possess an over-generous grandma is merely the cherry on top)! -- Imogen Russell Williams - Twitter

About the Author

Alex T. Smith has drawn and written stories since he could hold a pencil. After considering several career options (space traveller, cake maker, professional rabbit), Alex decided to train to do the job he’d wanted to do since he was five – an illustrator specializing in the world of children’s publishing.

Alex graduated with a first-class degree in Illustration in 2006 and also won second place in the Macmillan Prize for Illustration in his final year. Since then Alex has gone on to work for a wide variety of clients, not just in the publishing industry, as well as writing and illustrating his own picture books, many of which have won prizes and have been read on TV during the Bedtime Hour on the CBeebies channel. Alex is also the creator of the bestselling Claude series for early readers, now an animated TV series on Disney Junior. His wonderful Christmas adventure How Winston Delivered Christmas is his first title for Macmillan.

When not working, Alex enjoys doodling in his sketchbook, reading, people-watching and eavesdropping. He is also a big fan of cake and a nice cup of tea. He lives with and under the constant ‘supervision’ of his canine companions in Warwickshire.
