Synopsis:

How a deeply spiritual father, Clement Clarke Moore, returned his family's devotion with the gift of a poem.

From the Inside Flap:

Here is the charming story behind one of the best-loved poems in the English language--"'Twas the Night Before Christmas"--and its author, Clement Clarke Moore. Set in an era when Wall Street was adjacent to rolling farmland, this is the tale of a New York family's life and the devotion of the deeply spiritual father, who returned his family's fidelity with the gift of a poem. Moore's gift not only delighted his loved ones; it went on to enchant millions of people everywhere.

This Christmas, readers can make Moore's timeless gift of yuletide their own beloved tradition. Beautifully designed with twenty drawings, The Story of "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" features a facsimile of the poem in Moore's own handwriting.

Gerard and Patricia Del Re wrote together for over a decade prior to her death in 1997. During that time they wrote over twenty books, as well as numerous short stories and musical compositions. Their best-known book is The Christmas Almanack.

Patricia Del Re was also a composer of serious music, whose work was performed at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall. Gerard Del Re currently lives in New York.
