‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that Saint Nicholas soon would be there.


Clement Clarke Moore’s timeless Christmas poem is lavishly brought to life by Lisbeth Zwerger’s remarkable illustrations. Ms. Zwerger, internationally acclaimed for her beautifully illustrated editions of classic children’s tales, lends her unique vision to Saint Nicholas’ fantastic midnight visit.
Here is a version of the story unlike any other. Set in a Victorian style townhouse, it is filled with remarkable reindeer, children whose visions of sugar plums dance with reverie, and a Saint Nicholas who’s as distinctive and magical as Zwerger’s art itself. Ms. Zwerger is a recipient of the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for children’s bookillustrations, and this version of «The Night before Christmas» is sure to delight her fans of all ages, and bring a whole new generation to her celebrated art.
