Product Description
Charley Harper's A Partridge in a Pear Tree
"Anyone who does not laugh at that ending needs a heaping helping of Christmas spirit"—Infodad

Never before published, A Partridge in a Pear Tree wasn't intended as a commercial venture. Artist Charley Harper—perhaps with his wife, Edie, also an artist—created the fun little book for his family. A playful riff on the traditional Yuletide carol "The Twelve Days of Christmas," Partridge is the kind of whimsy an artist dashes off while relaxing around the fireplace—and that's the beauty of it. With its pastel sketches and humorous text, this sweet take on a holiday classic provides an intimate look at Harper's fun-loving personality.

About the Author
Raised on a farm in the wildlife-filled hills of West Virginia, Harper (American, 1922–2007) turned his lifelong passion for Earth's creatures into a legendary career in art.

Deftly using simple geometric shapes and gentle humor to capture an animal's essential traits, he delighted readers of Ford Times and many other publications with his illustrations. He also shared his love of our feathered, furry, and fishy friends in posters for the National Park Service and numerous conservation organizations.
