In the twilight hours of Christmas Eve, a hushed world enveloped in moonlit snow waits for the soft tinkling of sleigh bells to announce the most magical night of the year. Then comes a thump on the rooftop, a scratching in the chimney, and suddenly--Santa Claus appears!
In her fresh imagining of Clement C. Moore's enduring poem, acclaimed master watercolorist Holly Hobbie captures the magic of this timeless tale. Her vision of the night before Christmas glows with warmth and feeling, and features the delightful addition of a child's-eye view, which magnifies the wonder of this exciting, mysterious time.
"We purchased this with the hope of starting a Christmas tradition of regular reading in the run up to the holiday. It was exactly what we were hoping for: beautiful, whimsical, and modern illustrations; text spacing such that the book is neither too long nor too short; and a nice hardcover volume that isn't too big for the kids to hold onto themselves."
