When Clement Moore wrote a Christmas poem for his children about a magical visit from Saint Nicholas, he had no way of knowing that it would become the best-known and best-loved holiday poem of all time.
The magic of the familiar verses is brought to life with Tasha Tudor's enchanting illustrations. Her animals characters, like the barn owl who guides Santa to a safe landing and the cat who plays the fiddle for a dance, add a touch of whimsy and humor, and her characteristic watercolors, with their soft color, delicate detail, and nostalgic affection for a times past, are the perfect match for a classic poem that has delighted children and adults for generations.
