The Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore

Since it first appeared in 1823 as 'A Visit from St. Nicholas', The Night Before Christmas has been a classic Christmas story, read and enjoyed by children and adults. Stockings are hung on the mantlepiece, sugar plums dance through children's dreams, reindeer clamour on the rooftops and you know in a moment it must be Saint Nick!


Fans will adore sharing this oversized, traditional treatment of the beloved Christmas poem. A delectable holiday treat. -Kirkus Reviews
