Summary
This picture book gives the traditional lyrics of the well-known Christmas carol a new setting: Africa. Featuring vibrant collage illustrations that pay tribute to drummers from Ghana and Nigeria, dancers from Mali and Swaziland, and other African people and customs, it brings a whole new perspective to the holiday (the maids-a-milking, for example, milk goats, not cows). -- Description by Ellen Foreman
