A lovely book, with traditional pictures. This is a poem that has been read to all of my grandchildren on ChristmasEve, before bed, and has become a tradition (along with the Christmas pyjamas) in their families. This new purchase is for the latest addition and so the story continues and a new tradition starts
This is a short book compared to others illustrated by Ingpen , but absolutely BEAUTIFUL.Stunning illustrations .gorgeous poem for young and old . I am buying it for all my friends children and my nieces as it is a classic....to be read with a hot chocolate late on ChristmasEve which will put everyone in the spirit. the only thing that would have made it better would have been a santa in green( not coca cola red) which would have lent itself perfectly to this magical poem. Buy it , its a bit of magic!
We got this for our daughters first Christmas as we want to start a little family tradition of reading this on ChristmasEve as her bedtime story! Beautifully illustrated and a really lovely story! Would really recommend it
