The Lovereading4Kids commentCarol Ann Duffyâ€™s version of this classic Christmas poem sets aside the sentimentality of Clement Mooreâ€™s original, The Night Before Christmas, offering something equally timeless and memorable but crackling with robust wit. There are lots of contemporary references: a satellite dish can observe our every move and know of famine and greed â€“ but not see Father Christmas while cashpoints glow softly â€˜like icons of lightâ€™. But, in the end, the magic of Christmas is the same. Itâ€™s not the presents or the tree; itâ€™s the magic of truly believing.
Another Night Before Christmas by Carol Ann DuffyThe Night Before Christmas retold for the twenty-first century - this beautifully illustrated story by one of Britain's best loved poets is the perfect book for Christmas On the night before Christmas, a child in a house, as the whole family slept, behaved just like a mouse, and crept on soft toes down red-carpeted stairs.
