Product description

Review

"Santore has illustrated many classic stories, including Snow White, The Wizard of Oz, and The Little Mermaid, and he now brings to life Moore’s 'A Visit from St. Nicholas' in characteristically elegant and detail-rich paintings. His is a very traditional vision, as he brings readers inside a stately colonial home, tastefully appointed with wreaths, garlands, and stockings. In a particularly nice bit of design, when the narrator 'Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash,' readers can do the same, opening a double-page gatefold that reveals a quiet village blanketed by snow—and a sleigh silhouetted against the moon. It’s a gorgeous interpretation of a beloved holiday classic. All ages. (Oct.)"
--Publisher's Weekly, starred review

About the Author

Charles Santore renowned illustrations have been widely exhibited in museums and celebrated with recognitions such as the prestigious Hamilton King Award, the Society of Illustrators Award of Excellence, and the Original Art 2000 Gold Medal from the Society of Illustrators. Santore is best known for his luminous interpretations of classic children’s stories such as Snow White, The Night Before Christmas and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s Paul Revere’s Ride, which was named 2004 Children’s Book of the Year for Poetry by the Bank Street College Children’s Book Committee. His illustrations for The Wizard of Oz, which is widely considered to be the quintessential illustrated version, were used as the scenic backdrops for a major television performance of the work.

Clement Clarke Moore, (1779-1863), was a professor at New York City's General Theological Seminary (built on land donated by his father) who, in an 1836 reprint of A Visit From St. Nicholas (more commonly known today as Twas the Night Before Christmas), was first credited as the author of the poem, and later included it in an anthology of his work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love it. I wish they had not chopped down Santore's double spread and made paper thicker!
By Tara Anderson on December 24, 2019
I wish they had used the same gray scale line as the Peter Rabbit cbk. I was hoping to do a colour study with my new set of poloychromos. I would happily pay for a higher grade of paper with a little tooth. This is a fun way to practice technique. In art college we used to make copies of the masters paintings to explore media.

I was really hoping for the full double page spreads. They have altered them. I bought the oversized lap board book with the intention of using it as a colouring guide. Many of the spreads have been reduced and chopped down which spoils Sandore's beautiful composition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old fashioned and traditional must have for Christmas
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on December 20, 2020
Beautifully illustrated story of the classical Night before Christmas poem. Must have in any Christmas collection, young and old!
Love the old fashioned illustrations, the stocking, the woman in bed with her satin bonnet kerchief and man with his sleeping cap. The illustrations of Santa Claus and his reindeer are wonderful. Only part I'm not found of is the illustration of Santa smoking his pipe. It fits in with the poem but don't think it was necessary to labour the smoke plume over two pages. 2.5 year old attention to detail didn't miss a beat! Overall a beautiful addition to our Christmas book collection.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on November 5, 2021
Artwork is good, nice size but unfortunately there is a misprint. "On, Donder and Blitzen!" What a let down. I was hoping it was going to be something to keep and give to my Kids but not now! Quite disappointed at such a simple error that could have easily been avoided! Must have just rushed it together, a quick publish for a quick buck over Christmas!
