About the Author
Clement C. Moore (1779 1863), an American scholar and poet, first wrote The Night Before Christmas in 1822 to entertain his children. A friend submitted it to a local newspaper, The Troy Sentinel, where it was published on December 23, 1823. Moore's delightful description of St. Nicholas and his eight flying reindeer has since become the definitive portrait of Santa Claus.

Charles Santore is a renowned illustrator and his many awards include the Society of Illustrators Award of Excellence, the Alumni Award of the Philadelphia College of Art, and the Hamilton King Award. Charles Santore's illustrations are part of the permanent collections of the Brandywine River Museum, Chadds Ford, PA; The Free Library of Philadelphia; New York City's Museum of Modern Art; The United States Department of the Interior and many private collections.
