Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Everyone knows the famous words: “‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house . . .” Clement C. Moores famous poem was written in 1822 and has been a holiday classic ever since. This edition, with gorgeous illustrations by Jessie Willcox Smith, was first published in 1912 and is considered by many to be the definitive version of the story.

Synopsis:

'Twas the Night Before Christmas has been in print for more than eighty years, and this version of the beloved poem with classic illustrations has become as much a part of Christmas as Santa Claus.

Synopsis:

This favorite Christmas poem comes alive as never before in this original and humorous version of the famous visit of Saint Nicholas. Beautiful cut-paper illustrations depicting the jolly old elf at work have a unique addition--a special glow-in-the-dark feature on every other page that will delight and intrigue children. Full color.

About the Author

Jessie Wilcox Smith (September 6, 1863 - May 3, 1935) was a prolific illustrator of magazines and children's books. She was a frequent contributor to Ladies Home Journal. A student of Howard Pyle, some of her best-known work for children includes Charles Kingsley's The Water Babies.
Clement Clarke Moore (July 15, 1779 - July 10, 1863) was a writer and professor and is credited with writing "A Visit from St. Nicholas" for his children. Originally published anonymously on December 23rd, 1823, the poem that would come to be known as "'Twas the Night Before Christmas," was responsible for the creation of the Santa Claus myth as it is known in the United States and much of the English-speaking world.
