What would YOU do with a partridge in a pear tree?
on 16 October 2000
It's no wonder that this little hardback is often out of stock, for it has to be the ideal Christmas stocking filler for anyone who enjoys books. Even as a child I remember singing this Christmas classic and thinking how ludicrous it was that anyone should send a gift of "eight-maids-a-milking". John Julius Norwich has transported these oddball lyrics into the 21st century and the female recipient of these peculiar Christmas presents responds as any sane person might. Buy this little gem as a gift for someone, and I guarantee you'll want another copy for yourself!
