The Night Before Christmas

Illustrated by Steph Lew

This beloved holiday favorite has been reimagined with colorful, warm illustrations and a cute little Christmas mouse to find on each spread.

Beloved for 200 years, Clement Clarke Moore’s treasured poem The Night Before Christmas has taught countless children about the magic of jolly St. Nick as he comes to each house on Christmas Eve. With modern illustrations and a Christmas mouse search-and-find element, this stunning picture book will delight young and old for years to come.

Clement Clarke Moore was born in New York City in 1779 and died in Newport, Rhode Island, in 1863. He was a scholar and writer of various topics, but is best known for his poem “’Twas the Night Before Christmas,” which was first published anonymously in 1823 as “A Visit from St. Nicholas.” It was finally attributed to Moore in 1844 as a poem he wrote for his children.
