The Night Before Christmas (Lisbeth Zwerger)

The Night Before Christmas by Clement Clarke Moore,
illustrated by Lisbeth Zwerger. Minedition, 2005.

As the Muppets sang, there's only one more sleep 'til Christmas! And it's the perfect time to show you another picture book version of "A Visit from St. Nicholas," aka "'Twas the Night Before Christmas!"

This one is illustrated by the amazing Lisbeth Zwerger, and was published the year Big Sis was born. It's a very small book, perfect for slipping into a stocking. My photos are mediocre to bad - did I mention the book is very small? - but I do so want to share it anyway!

I love the tall, big city dwelling. The tiny sleigh is especially enchanting next to it.

If you celebrate, then please, have a beautiful Christmas Eve night!
