This very special large-format hardback edition celebrates the 40th anniversary of Aotearoa's most beloved and iconic Christmas story.

This beautiful hardback gift edition celebrates 40 years of Aotearoa New Zealand's Twelve Days of Christmas.

  • On the first day of Christmas,
  • my true love gave to me
  • a pukeko in a ponga tree.

Written by the distinguished composer and Maori Language Commissioner Sir Kingi M. Ihaka and teamed with iconic illustrations by famed pop artist Dick Frizzell, this story has captivated and entertained children for four generations.

It has been performed in concerts, adapted into Christmas plays, and even inspired a festive community light show on Auckland's Harbour Bridge.

This edition of the story includes play-along music notation and chords, as well as a QR code that takes you to the song video so everyone can sing along!

This very special 40th-anniversary hardback edition is a gift to treasure and deserves a place on every bookshelf.


Kingi M. Ihakan and Illustrated by Dick Frizzell
