The Night Before Christmas

Clement C. Moore, illus. by Roger Duvoisin. Knopf, $16.99 (40p) ISBN 978-0-385-75459-0
First published in 1954, this interpretation of Moore’s holiday poem by the late Caldecott Medalist Duvoisin returns to print in a handsome edition sure to charm new generations of readers. The picture book’s tall, skinny trim size is as eye-catching as the vivid primary color scheme of Duvoisin’s art, as he follows a stout and abundantly bearded Santa down the brick chimney of the narrator’s home. The illustrator’s fans may notice that the stuffed yellow lion among Santa’s gifts bears a notable resemblance to Louise Fatio’s The Happy Lion, which Duvoisin illustrated the same year. All ages.
