Ding Dong! Merrily on High: A Pop-up Book of Christmas Carols
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Here, beautifully presented in 3-D pop-ups, are five familiar and much-loved carols: O Christmas Tree, Silent Night, We Three Kings, Hark the Herald Angels Sing and Ding Dong Merrily on High. Complemented by the melody line and guitar chords, these carols evoke the traditional spirit of Christmas.

Angels climb up to decorate a swirling Christmas tree; a seraphic sphere mysteriously appears in the silent night above a miniature, glowing, Nativity; the Three King's star slowly turns into a rose-window kaleidoscope; hosts of angels wing in flight across the sky; and, in a rousing finale, ranks of small choirboys watch as two choristers take turns to ring the great cathedral bell. This beautiful and ingenious pop-up treasury makes a perfect Christmas gift.

“Five traditional carols (including words and music) set in beautifully illustrated pop-up scenes. Get those recorders ready!” (Angels and Urchins)
“As sublime as a heavenly host singing their cherubic heads off.” (Families South East)
“An evening gathered around the piano (or CD player) will have everyone feeling festive. For inspiration, take a look at one of the seasonal song books, such as ‘Ding Dong Merrily on High’ by Francesca Crespi, with pop-up illustrations, music and lyrics.” (Junior)
