'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there...
There are countless renditions of Clement C. Moore's classic holiday poem, The Night Before Christmas, but none is cozier or more full of joy than this one, brought to magical life by one of America's most cherished and highly-acclaimed illustrators, the late Tasha Tudor. This special 10th anniversary paperback has a great new look, with a redesigned cover featuring an illustration of a Christmas tree and sparkling gold foil. With crisp snowy landscapes, warm glowing details, and a host of cuddly critters, children (and adults!) will love cuddling up and reading this festive holiday story as they stay up on Christmas Eve, waiting for Santa to come down the chimney.
Clement Clarke Moore's classic Christmas story is illustrated in traditional oil paintings by renowned artist Ruth Sanderson. A small town New England setting serves as the backdrop for Saint Nick's visit on the night everyone dreams of sugar plums and Christmas joy. Sanderson's stunning paintings make this a gift book to be found under every Christmas tree.
