Many people know that famous opening line: “‘Twas the night before Christmas and all thro’ the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.” Clement Clarke Moore’s timeless poem "Night Before Christmas," originally titled “A Visit from St. Nicholas,” has passed from generation to generation since it was published nearly two hundred years ago.
Many consider it to be the quintessential Christmas Eve bedtime story. It has been featured in countless film, theater, and musical adaptations, among other mediums, and has been said to be “arguably the best-known verses written by an American.”
Revisit this Christmas Eve classic with your child in a stunning repackaged and redesigned edition, featuring beautiful vintage art by A. E. Kennedy that will charm and captivate readers both young and old just before Santa arrives.
