The Night Before Christmas
Beloved illustrator Holly Hobbie offers a timeless take on the best-known Christmas poem of all time.
In the twilight hours of Christmas Eve, a hushed world enveloped in moonlit snow waits for the soft tinkling of sleigh bells to announce the most magical night of the year. Then comes a thump on the rooftop, a scratching in the chimney, and suddenly--Santa Claus appears!
In her fresh imagining of Clement C. Moore's enduring poem, acclaimed master watercolorist Holly Hobbie captures the magic of this timeless tale. Her vision of the night before Christmas glows with warmth and feeling, and features the delightful addition of a child's-eye view, which magnifies the wonder of this exciting, mysterious time.
By Clement C. Moore, Illustrated by Holly Hobbie. Published by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, 2013. 40 pages, hardcover.
