'Tis the Season…Or 'twill be soon... and, as usual, many publishers have studded their fall lists with holiday titles. Among these offerings are a handful of picture books that present either a traditional take or a novel twist on Clement C. Moore's perennial favorite, 'Twas the Night Before Christmas.
Artist Matt Tavares returns to the very first version of this rhyme, published anonymously in a newspaper, the Troy Sentinel, in 1823. In 'Twas the Night Before Christmas or Account of a Visit from St. Nicholas (Candlewick), the poem appears with its original spelling and punctuation, accompanied by Tavares's monochome illustrations that reflect the work's Victorian-era origin.
Mary Engelbreit has also illustrated a version of this tale, The Night Before Christmas. Mischievous elves and a tiny mouse are among the creatures stirring in the paintings Engelbreit has created for this HarperCollins release.
In a playful departure from the standard version, Judy Sierra sets this poem in a haunted house in 'Twas the Fright Before Christmas, illustrated by Will Hillenbrand. In addition to Santa Mouse, a werewolf, cat, zombie and a bat make appearances in this Harcourt picture book.
Santa travels by fire truck rather than sleigh in another variation on this tale, Firefighter's Night Before Christmas by Kimbra Cutlip, who also wrote Sailor's Night Before Christmas. In this Pelican title, which features art by James Rice, firefighters on the Christmas Eve shift receive a visit from an old fireman who turns out to be Sgt. St. Nick.
