Description


’Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house . . .

 

Clement Clarke Moore’s timeless poem about Christmas Eve is beautifully brought to life by illustrator Lisbeth Zwerger and her unique interpretation of Santa’s fantastic midnight visit. The poem—originally titled, “A Visit from St. Nicholas”—is in large part responsible for the conception of the Santa Claus recognized today and is artistically rendered in this picture book full of holiday spirit.

 

About the Author


Clement Clarke Moore was a professor of Oriental and Greek literature and the author of "A Visit from St. Nicholas," which later became "The Night Before Christmas." Lisbeth Zwerger is one of the most highly regarded illustrators of children's books and was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Medal in 1990 to recognize her lifetime contribution to children's literature. She is the author and illustrator of numerous books, including "The Little Mermaid "and" Tales from the Brothers Grimm."

Praise For…


"Classic illustrations convey the magic of St. Nick’s visit, from the shadows cast by his sleigh to the twinkling eyes and rosy cheeks of his friendly face." —childrensandteensbookconnection.wordpress.com


"I’m always pleased to see Zwerger’s artwork. She’s one of those illustrators who made me want to study children’s literature…. In the Foreword, Peter Sís writes: 'Her art flows and shines.' Yes, what he said." —Julie Danielson, blaine.org
