"Lushly textured pencil drawings capture the mystery, surprise, and anticipation of . . . the most magical night of the year." PUBLISHERS WEEKLYOnce upon a time, children imagined St. Nicholas as a stern, skinny bishop who was as likely to dole out discipline as Christmas presents. But thanks to the anonymous publication of the poem "Account of a Visit from St. Nicholas" in the TROY SENTINAL in 1823, a plumper, merrier St. Nick was born, transformed into the sleigh-riding, chimney-diving, jolly old elf we now call Santa Claus. Complemented by gorgeous monochrome illustrations that are meticulously true to pre-Victorian times, this definitive volume of 'TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS, honoring the poem's original language, is now available in a compact gift edition.

4.0 End of Christmas in July
I had found this poem and thought it would be good to have on hand for the girls to read as it had been written (along with the notes on the author and how he had written the poem for his children). I think it will make its way into the curriculum for school this year. What a nice way to end July.

5.0 The Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore
On Christmas Eve, my partner and I decided to marathon a whole bunch of Christmas movies and specials. Some of which I have seen but she hasn't and some of which she has seen but I haven't. Among the ones she hasn't seen is the Rankin and Bass special of Twas the Night Before Christmas. However, bef...

4.0 The Night Before Christmas; Or: Merry Christmas
I want to wish every one a Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays with lots of nice things (and good books). What better way to do so then by reviewing The Night Before Christmas, on, well, the night before Christmas. I must admit I'd never even heard of this sweet little poem until very recently. I al...

5.0 Twas the Night Before Christmas
I found this book for free on Amazon and thought it was really interesting that this book had the part of smoking edited, by Santa Claus himself, out of the story. That was one of the things that always got me thinking when I was younger about the original - my parents smoked for awhile, my sister d...
