Jim Henson's Muppet Babies' Christmas Book is a 41 page storybook adaptation of The Twelve Days of Christmas and The Night Before Christmas, starring Baby Kermit and Baby Piggy from Muppet Babies. The text is taken directly from the original sources.
The 12 Days of Christmas
Kermit presents Piggy with Christmas presents, including three Muppet Chickens in berets touting French flags, Gonzo juggling 5 golden rings and a dozen Whatnot drummers. Piggy - overwhelmed by anarchy of the 50 Whatnots, 23 birds and Gonzo taking over the house - finally passes out under the lone pear tree. Twelve images from the book were reused as the basis for a set of 12 puzzles published in 1994 by Western Publishing.
The Night Before Christmas
After Piggy (in her kerchief) goes to bed, Kermit spies Santa Claus doing his job on Christmas Eve.
