KIRKUS REVIEW

Superb watercolors precisely accented serve forth the King's gifts on each of the thirteen days of the Scottish yule, as told in a more prodigal version of ""The Twelve Days of Christmas."" The introduction counsels that a carol can be also a game or a dance and offers instructions for each. Applications aside, this is a joy to look upon: the various configurations of ""three goldspinks, three starlings, a goose that was gray./ Three plovers, three partriks, a papingo-ay"" (to begin with); the distinct lineaments of each new entrant; the hand lettering all form a coherent, surpassingly handsome whole.
