Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

'Twas the night before Christmas,

when all through the house

not a creature was stirring,

not even a mouse.

These familiar words have never before been illustrated with such style. Magnificent paintings by American artist Richard Jesse Watson infuse traditional images with pizzazz and flair. From cozy interiors to snowy landscapes, each scene is packed with the details of Christmas. Watch for the remarkable cast of elves who populate these pages. Best of all, see Santa Claus himself as you've never seen him before, complete with an exclusive interview.

Spilling over with all the joy and generosity of the season, here is an edition of Clement C. Moore's classic Christmas poem that is perfect for families of today. Ho! Ho! Ho!

Synopsis:

These pocket-size editions of The Night Before Christmas and the Nutcracker capture the magic of the original stories with any array of enticing illustrations. The Night Before Christmas includes images by the world's most renowned children's book illustrators of the late 19th and early 20th centuries gathered from a collection of antique picture books. And in The Nutcracker, Michael Hague's show-stopping artwork brings the excitement of this festive holiday story to life. The timeless appeal of these classical Christmas tales in these visually stunning mini editions are a glorious tribute to the most magical night of the year.

Cathy from Olympia, Washington, December 7, 2007 (view all comments by Cathy from Olympia, Washington)
Santa cruises in a rocket-ship-style sleigh into snowy Port Townsend, Washington, dressed like a biplane aviator and aided by a ethnically diverse group of elves, including one with dreadlocks. Award-winning children's book author and artist Richard Jesse Watson was inspired by memories of his father flying homemade airplanes in the 1920s, and began imagining "St. Nick as an aviator, flying around the entire globe in one night ... [in a] tricked-out sleigh." His fresh, whimsical, detailed and vivid illustrations remind me of a cross between Steven Kellogg, David Wiesner, and Chris Van Allsburg. A wonderful book! I plan to purchase several copies-- one for my kids (ok, myself, but I share nicely!), plus copies for nieces and nephews.
