Product Description

Review

A smiling Santa in goggles and aviator helmet speeds up the Christmas Eve delivery system with updated transportation from his "Far Northair" sleigh. This futuristic-looking vehicle still uses eight reindeer, but additional propulsion is controlled through sophisticated equipment in the covered cockpit (including a built-in beverage maker with choices from hot chocolate to borsht). This interpretation of Moore's classic poem finds Santa making a delivery to a household with three children in a traditional, suburban neighborhood. The father of the family springs out of bed in a panic in one dramatic spread, with his hand seeming to stretch right off the page toward the reader. A diverse crew of helpers joins Santa on his Christmas Eve flight, with costumed elves from many countries and ethnic groups helping to unload the toys and clean the soot off Santa's red cape, furry pants and pointed boots. Elves and toys decorate the endpapers and also appear as spot illustrations at the end of the poem's verses, which are attractively framed with bold, red borders on alternating spreads. An "interview" of St. Nick by illustrator Watson concludes the volume. (Picture book. 3-7) (Kirkus Reviews) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Clement C. Moore (1779-1863) was a New York professor of divinity and literature best remembered today for his poem A Visit From St Nicholas, which became known as Twas the Night Before Christmas.

Eric Puybaret has already published more than 20 books in his native France, and is best known in the UK for his illustrations in PUFF, THE MAGIC DRAGON (978-0-230-70381-0). His dreamy, peaceful artwork conveys all the charm and wonder of this much-loved poem.
