The night before Christmas is a Christmas poetry book. The story explains how children wait on Santa Claus to come visit their home at night. The children go to bed early and have sweet dreams. Santa finally arrives to the home and makes quite a ruckus as he arrives. The children spring out of their beds, and run to the window to see Santa and his reindeer. Santa then calls each reindeer by name, and Santa has the reindeer go to the top of the house. Santa then comes down the Chimney, and is covered in soot. The poem then explains how Santa appears; dimples, cherry nose, and a white beard are some of Santa’s physical characteristics. Santa then goes to work by filling up the stockings. He then turns and leaves the home and dashes away with the reindeer in the night.

Is there something strange going on here? Unless my eyes are playing tricks on me, the picture of the cover of this book says, "Illustrated by Tasha Tudor." However, the Full Description tells us this book is illustrated by Ted Rand...

“The night before Christmas, when all through the house not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.” “As I drew in my head, and was turning around, down the chimney St Nicholas came with a bound.”
