'Twas the Night Before Christmas

Corinne Malvern, illustrator Western Publishing Company, 1949

This illustrated version of Clement C. Moore's famous poem is probably the most familiar to me. I love the old fashioned feel to it which is emphasized by the calendar at the beginning which reads 1822. This particular edition of the book still has the Mary Reed stamp of approval on the cover page. THIS is exactly how I picture Santa Claus.
