Every year, I do some Christmas art with my originals. Usually, it's 1 major work I introduce before Christmas, but this year, I decided to do *THREE* This is the first of 3. The theme this year is song related. I chose these song titles that best fit my characters personalities.
First up, little Maddie, the title character who appears in my picture books "Maddie Mckenszie: The Most ANNOYING Little Sister EVER." and "Maddie Mckenszie an the BAD Birthday Party Manners"
The song she represents, titled "All I Want for Christmas is my Two Front Teeth" is a song written by Donald Yetter Gardner in 1944 in Smithtown, NY on Long Island. While teaching a second grade class asking what they wanted for Christmas, Donald noticed that everyone spoke in a lisp due to a missing tooth. Thus the song was born, written in only 30 minutes. This Christmas song is pretty unique, as it only can be sung convincingly by children...and hockey players.
Don't take my word for it, have a listen.
