'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

Here is a perfect Christmas remembrance for all members of the family - an ageless poem and pictures that grown-ups and children will treasure always. This book perfectly captivates the true feeling of Christmas.

Synopsis

The Night Before Christmas by Zdenko Basic

This glorious publication sees Clement C. Moore's timeless verse brought to new life with magical artwork that is sure to bring visions of sugarplums to everyone's head!

Generations of children have gone to bed on Christmas Eve with the hoof-beats of eight tiny reindeer in their ears and in their minds the vision of Saint Nick with his pipe and beard at the fireplace filling their stockings, as described in the incomparable The Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
