The Night Before Christmas
Clement C. Moore
Illustrated by Christian Birmingham
Picture Book
Ages 3 and up
HarperCollins UK, 2004, 0-00-716711-3
  In this beautiful presentation of that classic Christmas poem by Clement C. Moore, readers of all ages will discover a whole world of beautiful illustrations which accompany the text. In addition to full and double page color paintings there are also small black and white pencil drawings which capture little Christmas details such a little sleeping mouse, a moonlit rooftop, a dollhouse waiting for someone to play with it, and a holly wreath on a door. An introduction at the beginning of the book briefly tells the story of the poem and its creator.
