About the Book

On the 30th anniversary of the publication of the hardcover, this classic edition of a beloved Christmas poem, illustrated by Caldecott Honor and Newbery Honor Award-winner Tomie dePaola, is now available as a board book.

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. . . . Clement Moore’s much-loved poem, written as a gift for his six children on Christmas Eve, has touched the hearts of families ever since it was first published in 1822. Legendary author/illustrator Tomie dePaola has set the poem in a mid-nineteenth-century New England town perfectly suited to the nostalgic text. The illustrations were modeled after dePaola’s own home in a small New Hampshire village, and the borders are based on stunning designs from New England quilts from his own collection. Now this classic edition can be enjoyed by the very youngest readers as a board book.

The hardcover picture book edition of Tomie dePaola’s The Night Before Christmas was a Booklist Children’s Reviewers’ Choice title. It was called a “treasure” by Booklist in a starred review and “the award winner’s most remarkable opus” and “a singular feat” by Publishers Weekly.
