Twas the Night Before Christmas (Enhanced eBook)


December 23, 2021

Book Details

In 1823, clergyman Clement Clarke Moore, from upstate New York, captured the imagination of the entire nation with his delightful, rhymed description of red-suited Santa Claus and his reindeer-drawn sleigh. This newly-illustrated Christmas book introduces a "mouse" character, great for toddlers, playing off the reference that "not even a mouse" would stir on the magical night before the children's favorite holiday. Author Sally M. Veillette was inspired to create this book in multiple languages, even bilingual versions, to share Moore's magic with kids around the world.

Author Description

Sally Veillette is a dual citizen of Italy and the USA. She created this book for her newborn daughter, Chiara. Three illustrators collaborated on the images, adding a playful mouse character to Clement Clarke Moore's traditional cast of characters. Several people came together to translate the poem into Italian to honor Moore's lighthearted spirit, rhyme and rhythm. Merry Christmas to all! Buon Natale!
