The Lovereading4Kids comment
Clement C. Moore’s poem is as much a part of Christmas as robins, holly and sleigh bells at midnight. Originally written in 1823 it’s been a favourite pretty much ever since and this version, with warm, lively illustrations by Mark Marshall is full of appeal for today’s young readers. The cover sparkles beautifully and St Nick is resplendent in red and white against bright green end papers even before the story starts. The anonymous hero with the ringside seat is a little boy called Sam and he has a friendly puppy at his side throughout, making it feel particularly child-friendly. St Nicholas and his reindeer have never looked cuddlier or more jolly and this is a rousing seasonal treat. ~ Andrea Reece
A Piece of Passion from Maudie Powell-Tuck, Editor The Night Before Christmas is such an iconic Christmas poem – a true family favourite. In this new illustrated edition, we wanted to bring this enchanting story to a new generation of children. Traditionally, The Night Before Christmas is told from the perspective of the father of the family. We thought it would be magical for young readers if one of the children wakes and sees Santa Claus instead. Mark Marshall felt like the perfect choice to illustrate the book. His art is wonderfully naïve and appealing, perfectly capturing the thrill and wonder of Christmas for little children. I hope this book will be cherished by families for many Christmases to come.
The Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore
'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse ...It's Christmas Eve and the whole house is sleeping - all except one little boy, woken up by the jingle of bells and the clatter of reindeer hooves on the roof. As he tiptoes downstairs, who will he find?
