Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Everyone knows the famous beginning to this beloved holiday poem: “Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house . . .” Clement Moores 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.

This lovely tale is now a part of the Folk Tale Classics series, with gold foil stamping on the cover and full-color illustrations throughout. A beautiful and affordable edition of a classic, this book deserves a place in every childs library!

Synopsis:

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

About the Author

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. 

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.
