There are many books based on the poem written by Clement C. Moore, however, this wonderful new version of The Night Before Christmas is a classic edition with the original wording, it mentions the pipe that Ol’ St. Nick smokes. Also, the book is full of amazing illustrations from Charles Santore, who is also the illustrator of The Wizard Oz, The Little Mermaid, and Snow White.
