The Night Before Christmas

A dazzling take on the classic Christmas poem, with sumptuous artwork full of traditional touches. Enter a snow-covered world of magic and merriment. Look up! What can you see in the sky? Actually, there are wonderful things to see on every page of this book: holly garlands, shop windows full of treasures, Victorian carol singers wrapped up in their long cloaks. Still – all is quiet in the house. Not a creature is stirring, not even a mouse. But soon, the night’s peace will be rocked by a clatter. Hmm: can you guess what might be the matter?

  • A classic Christmas poem to share on Christmas Eve
  • Beautifully illustrated by major artist Angela Barrett
  • Evokes a traditional Christmas with elegance and flair
  • A delight to read aloud as you wait for Santa to come

“Every family needs a copy of The Night Before Christmas. Angela Barrett’s edition is the perfect read for a Christmas Eve bedtime.” Sunday Express
