Running Press is proud to be the publisher of the best-selling edition among all the available versions of Clement C. Moore's classic Christmas Eve poem. With appearances at the top of the "New York Times" bestseller list over the past ten years, illustrator Christian Birmingham's stunning interpretation of this holiday favorite has been clearly embraced by the market. Now, for the second year in row, we are thrilled to have Birmingham's gorgeous illustrations available in a board book edition. These two unbelievably priced treasures have become as much a tradition for booksellers as the classic tale itself.
