"'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Generations of children have thrilled to these words as their favorite holiday grows near. Clement C. Moore wrote this account of a man's encounter with St. Nicholas in 1822 to entertain his children. Since then, his charming descriptions have become the definitive portrait of Santa Claus, from his twinkling eyes to his droll little mouth to the belly that shakes like a "bowlful of jelly." In this edition, award-winning illustrator Bruce Whatley brings Moore's well-loved Christmas classic to life with his vivid pictures and unusual perspectives. Readers can practically look up Dasher and Dancer's noses at one point, in a near-3-D close-up image of Santa's flock of reindeer.
Bright colors and clever details (one remaining leaf hangs from a tree outside the window, mice curl tightly together in a nest on a high shelf, reindeer peek mischievously over the rooftop at the unsuspecting narrator...) make this a holiday book the whole family will return to year after year. (Ages 3 to 10) --Emilie Coulter
Clement Moore's beloved poem has been a cherished part of the holidays for over a hundred and fifty years, and Tasha Tudor's delicate watercolors make this book a gift to her readers. Recreating her own Vermont farm home, her illustrations enliven the poem with all the charm of an old-fashioned country Christmas: handmade gifts under a candle-lit tree, stockings hanging by an open fire, and a magical visit from Saint Nicholas.
Tasha Tudor's affectionate watercolors evoke the warmth and gentleness of a simpler time. Her whimsical characters and period detail are the perfect match for the world's most beloved Christmas poem, making this elegant gift edition one that will be treasured by families for generations.
