T'was the night before Christmas, and all through the house...for decades families have gathered together to read Clement C. Moore's eternally enchanting holiday poem. And now there's a magical new version to ring in the season with joy. Featuring beautiful original illustrations by award-winning artist Tom Browning, this stunning edition of The Night Before Christmas stands apart from the rest. Browning, regarded in the gift industry as America's premiere Santa painter, has created a classically styled Saint Nick--the quintessential round, jolly, white-bearded figure that everyone, young and old, imagines. The look is timeless, traditional, filled with warmth and sentiment: exactly what Christmas should be. The story's enduring charm and Browning's memorable art make The Night Before Christmas a must-have for any child who is just discovering the tale--and every adult who has loved it forever.
