Book Review: The Twelve Topsy-Turvey, Very Messy Days of Christmas

Posted by Kristin Arnold on December 21, 2023

Happy Holidays!  I’ve always wondered what would happen if each of the presents from the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas” (my true love gave to me!) arrived on your doorstep in the twelve days leading up to Christmas.

In the book, The Twelve Topsy-Turvey, Very Messy Days of Christmas, Authors James Patterson and Tad Safran concoct a hilarious situation where that actually happens!

I read this book on the plane (doesn’t take very long) and laughed out loud almost the entire time. If you want a fun way to get into the Christmas spirit, read this book, laugh with your friends, and share your favorite gift!

(Mine were the nine ladies dancing, complete with fishnet stockings and black ruffled dresses, straight out of a French cabaret!)  I’m keeping this book with my Christmas ornaments and will read it again next holiday season!
