We have more than fifty versions of this wonderful poem in our library; this is one of our favorites. Margaret Evans Price has a gentle talent. The Santa Claus on the cover, and throughout, is one of the kindest, least threatening Santas ever imagined. Notice how his knees are slightly bent by the weight of his pack. See his big and prominent boots. This is a Santa who is appealingly earth bound. This is a facsimile of the 1917 edition. We have die-cut it, as in the original, and the rounded top makes it especially appealing. This is an ideal first Night Before Christmas for a young child.Moore, Clement C. is the author of 'Night Before Christmas ' with ISBN 9781595830098 and ISBN 159583009X.
