152 - The Twelve Cats of Christmas; Kandy Radzinski

Most everyone has heard of the Christmas Carol, The Twelve Days of Christmas, but now a delightful spin on that popular song, for children and cat loving adults alike: The Twelve Cats of Christmas, by Kandy Radzinski is just that.

In this adorable holiday book, the author features twelve cute as can be cats in various poses, playing, drinking milk, and just have a fun time. The story, a parody to the original song, is told in sing song rhyme:

On the fourth day of Christmas,
my true love gave to me
four Siamese,
three climbing cats,
two cats asleep,
and a white cat with a red bow.  

The author/artist Kandy Radzinski has created a page turning delight which rich, colorful detail that truly makes the book a keeper for years to come. If you have not had the opportunity to view some of Radzinski's illustrations in the past, you need to check out one her books. Highly Recommended.
