The Night Before ChristmasBook - 2004
Nothing so bespeaks Christmas as Clement C. Moore's classic poem. Ted Rand has illustrated it with lush pictures that are at once fresh yet comfortably traditional, set in the era in which the poem was written. in masterful paintings suffused with glowing light, the frosty, moonlit landscape glistens, reindeer soar in graceful splendor, and St. Nicholas, resplendent in his suit of red, is the very picture of Moore's jolly old elf. While paying faithful tribute to the smallest detail of the beloved myth, the artist infuses it with magical new life, creating a holiday treasure that families will share and delight in for generations to come.
