The Night Before Christmas

The Night Before Christmas

by Clement Clarke Moore Illustrated by Mary Engelbreit

In this fresh approach to America's favorite Christmas poem, Tasha Tudor invites readers of all ages to look at the tale through the prism of a detailed Vermont setting that reflects her own everyday life. This personal touch, which includes an elfish interpretation of Saint Nick, gives the story the inviting warmth that is a Tudor hallmark. This The Night Before Christmas is one that will illuminate this holiday season and those for years to come.
