Clement Moore's classic `Twas the Night Before Christmas surely tops the list of all-time favorite Christmas stories. After "hanging their stockings by the chimney with care," with hopes that "St. Nicholas soon will be there," children `round the world are "nestled all snug in their beds, while visions of sugar plums dance in their heads" every Christmas Eve.
It's rare to find children's books like this one. This book has been out-of-print for years. What makes it especially distinctive, and the reason it has been revised and reprinted, are the many unique, colorful illustrations by W. W. Denslow, who was best known for his original illustrations in The Wizard of Oz.
Vintage children's author Grace Duffie Boylan, in her introduction, sets the stage by describing how the story came to be written.
The combination of bright, colorful vintage artwork, coupled with a playful typeface telling a much-loved story, makes for a delightful reading experience for both parents and children!
