On a moonlit Christmas Eve, a family snuggles in for the long, cold night. The parents and children sleep soundly until . . . strange sounds from the snow-covered lawn awaken them. It's clear that there's glorious magic afoot when a miniature sleigh and eight tiny reindeer appear--driven by jolly old St. Nick!
Celebrate the joy of the Christmas season with this beloved holiday poem, made new again in this gift edition brightened by the humor and warmth of Reginald Birch's illustrations.

Originally published anonymously on December 23rd, 1823, the poem that would come to be known as "'Twas the Night Before Christmas," was responsible for the creation of the Santa Claus myth as it is known in the United States and much of the English-speaking world.
