"Santore has illustrated many classic stories, including Snow
White, The Wizard of Oz, and The Little Mermaid, and he now brings
to life Moore's 'A Visit from St. Nicholas' in characteristically
elegant and detail-rich paintings. His is a very traditional
vision, as he brings readers inside a stately colonial home,
tastefully appointed with wreaths, garlands, and stockings. In a
particularly nice bit of design, when the narrator 'Tore open the
shutters and threw up the sash,' readers can do the same, opening a
double-page gatefold that reveals a quiet village blanketed by
snow-and a sleigh silhouetted against the moon. It's a gorgeous
interpretation of a beloved holiday classic. All ages."

About the Author
Clement C. Moore was a religious scholar most well-known for his
poem "An Account of a Visit from St. Nicholas," which today is
beloved as "The Night Before Christmas." Charles Santore's beloved
editions of The Wizard of Oz, Aespo's Fables, The Complete Tales of
Peter Rabbit, and more have sold 2 million copies, and his The
Night Before Christmas is destined to become the definitive
illustrated edition families will seek to own.
