Clement C. Moore's The Night Before Christmas

Clement C. Moore's The Night Before Christmas

A Modern Adaptation of the Classic Tale


The perfect picture book to capture children's imagination as they wait for Father Christmas to arrive...

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

It's Christmas Eve and, as Father Christmas takes to the skies, all the children of the city are tucked up fast asleep. Or are they...? The sound of sleigh bells and reindeer hooves wake one little boy, who creeps down the stairs to find a very special visitor in his lounge.

Discover the magic of Christmas Eve in this modern version of Clement C. Moore's classic Christmas poem.
