'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse . . .

Lisbeth Zwerger's remarkable illustrations breathe fresh life into Clement Clarke Moore's timeless Christmas poem as she lends her unique vision to Saint Nicholas's fantastic midnight visit.

Here is a version of the classic verse unlike any other. Set in a Victorian style townhouse, it is filled with remarkable reindeer, children whose visions of sugar plums come alive with reverie, and a Saint Nicholas who's as distinctive and magical as Zwerger's art itself. Zwerger is a recipient of the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for children's book illustrations, 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.
