The Night Before Christmas

By Clement Clarke Moore (Trade Paperback, 2002)
'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there...


There are countless renditions of Clement C. Moore's classic holiday poem, The Night Before Christmas, but none is cozier or more full of joy than this one, brought to magical life by one of America's most cherished and highly-acclaimed illustrators, the late Tasha Tudor. This special 10th anniversary paperback has a great new look, with a redesigned cover featuring an illustration of a Christmas tree and sparkling gold foil. With crisp snowy landscapes, warm glowing details, and a host of cuddly critters, children (and adults!) will love cuddling up and reading this festive holiday story as they stay up on Christmas Eve, waiting for Santa to come down the chimney.

Tasha Tudor (1915-2008) is the author, illustrator, and/or subject of nearly one hundred books. During her legendary career, which spanned nearly three quarters of a century, she received two Caldecott Honors (for Mother Goose in 1945 and One is One in 1957), as well as a Regina Medal for her contributions to children's literature in 1971. Much of Tudor's original artwork can be found in museums, libraries and hundreds of private collections around the world.
  • Praise for The Night Before Christmas:

    "[Tudor's] cozy, nostalgic watercolor scenes, often lit by candle or roaring fire... succeed in creating an aura of holiday fantasy. A spunky, elfin Saint Nicholas, a menagerie of perky pets... and a very busy family of mice partying beneath the floorboards add a sense of fun." - PW

    "This animal romp is pictured in glowing detailed watercolors that are placed on each page like miniatures set against starlit night backgrounds. This version will have particular appeal for one-on-one sharing in homes where pets have a special place." - School Library Journal

    "This is a clever story told by a master storyteller and illustrated with the sort of charming illustrations for which Tudor is known"- Booklist
