'Twas the Night before Christmasby Jessie Willcox Smith
Synopses & Reviews
Everyone knows the famous words: “‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house . . .” Clement C. Moore’s 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.
The rich beauty and magic of the holiday is captured through brilliant illustrations, from Santa's glittering sleigh to bright red stockings hanging from the mantelpiece, in a reissue of the 1912 edition of the Christmas Eve bedtime tale. Simultaneous.
'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.
