'Twas the Night Before Christmas has been in print for more than eighty years, and this version of the beloved poem with classic illustrations has become as much a part of Christmas as Santa Claus.

About the Author:

Jessie Wilcox Smith (September 6, 1863 - May 3, 1935) was a prolific illustrator of magazines and children's books. She was a frequent contributor to Ladies Home Journal. A student of Howard Pyle, some of her best-known work for children includes Charles Kingsley's The Water Babies.

Clement Clarke Moore (July 15, 1779 - July 10, 1863) was a writer and professor and is credited with writing "A Visit from St. Nicholas" for his children. Originally published anonymously on December 23rd, 1823, the poem that would come to be known as "'Twas the Night Before Christmas," was responsible for the creation of the Santa Claus myth as it is known in the United States and much of the English-speaking world. 

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 2—The perennial holiday favorite gets a clean, brightly illustrated picture book treatment. The end papers, reminiscent of wrapping paper, let readers know immediately that this will be a traditional take on the classic, and indeed it offers few surprises. The illustrations show that the clatter has awakened the little boy instead of the dad, and while the text indicates St. Nicholas has a pipe clenched in his teeth, it has been removed from his jolly face in the illustration, in a nod to political correctness. For those in need of a fresh version, this would work for group presentations. VERDICT Not essential for most libraries, but one that will please the preschool crowd.—Anne Connor, Los Angeles Public Library
