Mark Marshall's captivating illustrations places a little boy at the heart of Clement C Moore's classic Christmas poem. The bright and bold picture book is a perfect Christmas gift for young children - and a great way to introduce a new generation to this iconic poem. With a magical, glittery cover!

A Piece of Passion from Maudie Powell-Tuck, Editor The Night Before Christmas is such an iconic Christmas poem – a true family favourite. In this new illustrated edition, we wanted to bring this enchanting story to a new generation of children. Traditionally, The Night Before Christmas is told from the perspective of the father of the family. We thought it would be magical for young readers if one of the children wakes and sees Santa Claus instead. Mark Marshall felt like the perfect choice to illustrate the book. His art is wonderfully naïve and appealing, perfectly capturing the thrill and wonder of Christmas for little children. I hope this book will be cherished by families for many Christmases to come.

Synopsis

The Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse ...It's Christmas Eve and the whole house is sleeping - all except one little boy, woken up by the jingle of bells and the clatter of reindeer hooves on the roof. As he tiptoes downstairs, who will he find? Mark Marshall's captivating illustrations place a little boy at the heart of Clement C Moore's classic Christmas poem.
