Synopsis
Clement Moore’s classic ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas surely tops the list of all time favorite Christmas stories. After “hanging their stockings by the chimney with care,” with hopes that “St. Nicholas soon will be there,” children ‘round the world are “nestled all snug in their beds, while visions of sugar plums dance in their heads” every Christmas Eve.
It’s rare to find children’s books like this one. This book has been out-of-print for years. What makes it especially distinctive, and the reason it has been revised and reprinted, are the many unique, colorful illustrations by W. W. Denslow, who was best known for his original illustrations in The Wizard of Oz.
Vintage children’s author Grace Duffie Boylan, in her introduction, sets the stage by describing how the story came to be written.
The combination of bright, colorful vintage artwork, coupled with a playful typeface telling a much-loved story, makes for a delightful reading experience for both parents and children!
Amazon.com Review
Whose tiny faces are peeking out from Santa's golden sleigh? Yikes! It's two of Santa's elves who are Christmas Eve stowaways. Beloved illustrator Jan Brett's version of The Night Before Christmas lets these two mischievous elves add their rambunctious spirit to this familiar 1823 rhyming story. Here, Santa and his reindeer land on the snowy roof of a Victorian mansion in New England. While Santa delivers the toys inside, the elves and the reindeer frolic around the lawn, as a pig (earmarked for a girl named Jan) and a few alphabet blocks spill out of sacks into the snow. Santa swiftly reins in the mischief-makers and "away they all flew like the down on a thistle." Brett's richly illustrated borders are lavishly decorated with antique toys, ornaments, and sweet treats, all surrounded with twisting golden ribbons. They also give us a window on the mansion's inhabitants, including the children watching Santa's departure in awe. A sugarplum of a Christmas story, just right for a reading before "a long winter's nap." (Click to see a sample spread. Illustrations ©1998 by Jan Brett. Published by G.P. Putnam's Sons, a division of Penguin Putnam Books for Young Readers.) (Ages 3 to 6) --Marcie Bovetz
