The Night Before Christmas by Clement Moore - ESSENTIAL

Moore, Clement C. The Night Before Christmas, illustrated by Roger Duvoisin.  PICTURE BOOK.  Alfred Knopf (Random), 2014, 1954.  $17.  

Duvoisin’s illustrated version of this classic Christmas poem has been out of print for a couple of decades.  Now it is back, in a chimney-like edition, complete with Santa and his pipe and the wreath of smoke.  I remember this version from when I was a child - and by then it had already been well-worn by my older cousins.
