Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
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.

Had a good look through all the online versions of this book on Amazon and chose this and one other version The Night Before Christmas: The Original Story (Night Before Christmas Series), which was equally good.
As I read lots of reviews, that it’s a great tradition on Christmas Eve.
I got the more expensive book, only to be disappointed.
The txt gets smaller as the book goes on.
Poor picture quality.
The laminate on the cover is peeling.
The book had dents in the page, like it has already been used.
The gold edging on the cover is wonky.
I’m very disappointed. I wish I had. Got it second hand.
I don't think there are many people out there that aren't familiar with this poem by Clement C. Moore that was originally published in 1823. Theres a reason it's a classic and that's because it captures the magic of Christmas. We've had many versions of the book over the years but the one we read from now is beautifully illustrated by Richard Johnson, this is such a gorgeous book and I can't imagine a Christmas without it!
When reading to a child, I like to point out details in the picture that have been mentioned in the text, but in in these illustrations one is struggling to find an exact match. However it's a wonderful book to share with children, simply to talk about the pictures, but in addition I've just ordered a copy of the Gorsline version at £2.50, which is more faithful to, and enhances the poem itself.
