In 1822, Clement Clarke Moore created the classic Christmas poem, "The Night Before Christmas," for his daughter. Here, in verse and accompanied by over 50 richly detailed illustrations, is the story of the writing of this classic. It is based on the history of the poem as passed down through the generations of the Moore family and told to the author by Dinghy Sharp, the great-great-granddaughter of Clement Moore. Not only does the story of the beautiful and enduring poem's creation unfold in this tale, but many of the terms and actions of the characters in "The Night Before Christmas" are explained, including why stockings were hung, why windows were shuttered, what coursers were, and what exactly sugarplums that danced through childrens heads really were. Perhaps most moving, is Moores motivation and inspiration for the creation of the poem. This lovely edition is a natural companion to The Night Before Christmas, which is included in Moores own handwriting at the tales conclusion. This story is sure to become an equally valued part of the holiday tradition.
