This is the 10th book I have ordered to form an illustrated collection of The Night before Christmas poem by Clement C. Moore. Each book has at least a little magic, some are really large, roughly A4 size, some are small almost pocket size, and they are all so different it will be a particular joy to sit down with this pile of books and wander through them with a hot chocolate, late on Christmas Eve. I will probably have a dozen of them by then courtesy of Amazon, The Book Depository, and Royal Mail! But, so far, this is my favourite. It is a good size, colourful, beautifully illustrated book, which adults and children alike will love. The pictures are really magical. To explain the 'Edited by Santa Claus for the Benefit of Children of the 21st Century' - the fly-leaf on the back says this:- Dear Reader, Here at the North Pole we decided to leave all of that old tired business of smoking well behind us and I am pleased to report that we have never been healthier or happier. The reindeer asked that I confirm the fact that I have only ever worn fake fur out of respect for species that are in need of our protection, including my dear friends the arctic polar bears. Fondly Santa Claus'. So Santa is minus a pipe, and I for one, as an exponent for animal welfare and an environmentalist, am pleased to see any chance to teach the younger generation, taken advantage of as early as possible! Also, it says at the back of the book 'A gentle Footprint! This book was printed on 100% ancient forest-friendly paper certified by the Forest Stewardship Council {FSC) and printed with vegetable-based inks. So I for one give this book 100 Stars!

...but it was a bit strange viewing pictures with no words (what am I complaining about? It was free!). However this is the first book I have read on my new kindle so that might have had something to do with it. A lovely story and I am sure that I will be reading this to my son many times before Christmas.

Ps I have just re-read it and if you imagine how the actual picture book is, it reads better

Wow, this is the value of reading on an iPad rather than my kindle - vibrant colours, gorgeous if corny illustrations. I downloaded it to share with my granddaughter nearer Christmas but, at eight, she may be a little old for it...whereas I'm not! And for free, it's astounding value. Absolutely love it and if, as another reviewer suggested, Santa looks a bit dodgy I think you have to put it down to drinking all that sherry (Santa, not the reviewer!,)

This book has some beautiful illustrations, and looks great on the kindle fire. I'm not sure about the 'edited for the benefit of children of the 21st century' though, as the words appear to be pretty much the original poem/story, and the pictures are pretty old fashioned too. Father Christmas is definitely not delivering ipads and games consoles, and daddy is lighting his way round the house with a candle (not a kindle - which I use at night!).

My 2-year-old likes scrolling through the pages, and will listen to most of the story, but is probably a little too young to fully appreciate it.

Overall; beautifully illustrated, though not very modern Christmas story.
8 out of 10.

This was good but boring and short! I would recommend it to younger readers. I give it 3 stars. Georgie age 9

I bought this as we were away for Christmas and I forgot my sons book version, I like to read this to him every Christmas eve! This was a lovely version, it has some really nice pictures that - although a little small on the iPhone - made the story a little more magical than any other ebook version, after reading it to my son I then ha to read it again to my 5 year old sister, she loved it!
