"Twas the night before Christmas And 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."

With these familiar and magical words, the delicious anticipation of Christmas morning is captured in Clement C. Moore's classic story in verse. Award-winning illustrator Kim Fernandes uses her unique Fimo three-dimensional illustrations to bring the tale to enchanting life. Children and adults alike will marvel at the expressiveness and detail in each painstakingly crafted picture - from "eight tiny reindeer" to the "jolly old elf" himself. This new version is sure to become a seasonal favorite for years to come.
