There's nothing like Christmas in New York. "On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me--the Statue of Liberty!" So begins this clever adaptation of the beloved Christmas carol, in which author and illustrator Michael Storrings celebrates the things that we all love about New York City during the holidays. Filled with beautifully detailed illustrations of the most iconic symbols of New York, including five subway cars, four chestnut vendors, three cups of coffee, and two taxicabs, The 12 Days of Christmas in New York evokes all of the joy and wonderment that is skating in Central Park or shopping along Fifth Avenue. Elegant, fun, and able to fit into any stocking, this is the perfect gift for anyone who loves the magical way the greatest city in the world celebrates the most wonderful time of the year.
