Holly Hobbie's The Night Before Christmas (1976)
|Holly Hobbie's The Night Before Christmas by Clement Clark Moore, illustrated by Holly Hobbie.|
Platt & Munk, 1976.
I was going to save this book until closer to Christmas, but I just couldn't help myself. The other night, this entry over at The Marlowe Bookshelf caught my eye. This is when I truly hate not working in a bookstore. I miss finding out super-wonderful stuff, such as the fact that Holly Hobbie has a new version of The Night Before Christmas this year! Now I find out, now, after I have bought the girls their gifts, and after I have blown my book budget.
I mean, look at this cover. Isn't it gorgeous? You can see excerpts of it here.

As you can see from my lead photo, I do have a Holly Hobbie-illustrated version of The Night Before Christmas. Mine, however, comes from the 1970s heyday of the blue girl, also known as Holly Hobbie, and her friends.
I do love me some Holly Hobbie. See more on the blog here, or check out my Pinterest board "Holly Hobbie Love."
And Santa, if you're reading this, I would love Holly Hobbie's new version of The Night Before Christmas, please.
