Everyone knows the famous beginning to this beloved holiday poem:
"''Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house . .
." Clement Moore''s poem was written in 1822 and has been a holiday
classic ever since. This edition, with gorgeous illustrations by
Jessie Willcox Smith, was first published in 1912 and is considered
by many to be the definitive version of the story.
This lovely tale is now a part of the Folk Tale Classics
series, with gold foil stamping on the cover and full-color
illustrations throughout. A beautiful and affordable edition of a
classic, this book deserves a place in every child''s library!
