Product Description

Review

Twas The Night Before Christmas is the best known poem in the English language. If someone gave us its first line, most of us could recite the second line automatically.
--Bruce David Forbes--author

C's Review- I love this book because it ls when Santa comes. The pictures are very pretty and how a lot of colors. Santa looks kind of thin though. We can get this copy of the book right mom? (mom's note, OF COURSE) It's really fun at Christmas time to unwrap a new book each day, we did that last year*. You should all get this book and wrap it up for your kids.

Mom's Review- A new version of one of my favorite books ever! Can I tell a fun story? The first year my husband and I were engaged we were in a long distance relationship. I emailed this to him on Christmas Eve and when he called me that night he read it to me on the phone right before I drifted off to sleep! Our household currently owns 5 versions of this book and we will for sure be getting this one. I love the more modern look to it without going over board. As you saw above in the blurb, gone is the smoking, and fur of endangered animals. But even without some pieces you still have the true classic story some great new looks to graphics and the fun of the Night Before Christmas.

Clement C. Moore (1779-1863) is widely regarded as the very poet of Christmas Eve. Much of the way we have come to celebrate December 24th. is based on Moore�s portrayal of a jolly Santa, who along with his team of reindeer, brings happiness to children and joy to the world. Twas the Night Before was originally published in the New York Troy Sentinal newspaper in 1823. It has become the most famous poem in the English language. In 2011 various editions of this enchanting poem spent 36 weeks on the New York Times best sellers list under the children�s category.

A familiar tale that children love. What makes this book stand out is the wonderful illustrations. As the publisher of "The Easter Bunny Saves Christmas" http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00QLOPD4C I can appreciate the time and care put into producing this book.

This is a self-serving attempt to hijack a classic children's poem for political purposes. If you don't like what the original says, don't publish it. No one is holding a gun to your head. Responsible, professional publishers do not take the work of authors and alter it to suit their personal activist interests. Respect for the author should be paramount. It's a shame there are some who don't get this.

This book looks like the older versions but they have made it more up to date ie Santa doesn't smoke a pipe. I really felt it w well done.

I don't know what all the fuss is about. I think we can all agree anything that may contribute to children or youth smoking is something that should be reconsidered. In my opinion, the absence of the pipe doesn't damage the integrity of the original story at all. I think it's important to ask ourselves... is there any reason that there should be smoking in this book? Frankly, I don't understand the uproar. Aside from the smoking, it's a very nice book with great illustrations, perfect for young kids. If you WANT to have smoking included in your children's reading material, don't get upset about this book and just buy another edition!
