About the Book



Acclaimed "New Yorker," Pixar, and DreamWorks SKG illustrator Carter Goodrich tells both sides of "Twas the Night Before Christmas." On one side of the page, readers will enjoy the classic poem. On the other side is an ode to Christmas Eve from a child's perspective--a child who is too excited to sleep. This new twist on an old tale in the tradition of "The Polar Express" will appeal to the young and young at heart.



Book Synopsis



'Twas the night before Christmas, and in this great house the creature who stirred was a boy, not a mouse.

And while upstairs his parents were dreaming and snoring, with Santa so close, sleep seemed pretty boring.

Esteemed New Yorker cover artist Carter Goodrich retells the story of 'Twas the night before Christmas from the child's point of view.

With Clement Clarke Moore's classic poem one one side of every page, and a child's comedic rhyming on the other, this magical book about seeing and dreaming of Santa Claus will inspire readers of all ages to believe.

Against a luminous backdrop of midnight and silver, memories of Christmases past and present converge in a modern classic born in the tradition of The Polar Express.
