The Night Before The Night Before Christmas


It’s ‘The Night Before The Night Before Christmas‘. Santa is preparing. There is sewing, counting, carving and a list a mile long! The elves have ten billion presents to prepare and check! ‘There is no time to rest/ no time to shirk.’ 

Despite his list, Santa is certain there is something he’s missed. What could it be? ‘Aeroplanes. Bicycles. Boomerangs. Drums?‘ Mrs Claus delivers a cross, cold winter stew, while Santa attends to the reindeer and the sleigh. Still, he’s a nagging concern. What could it be?

This is a delicious rhyming Christmas story, incidentally in the same rhyme scheme as Clement C. Moore’s classic narrative poem. Claire Powell’s sparkling images add to the magic. The detail of Santa’s list is almost taste-tempting! To discover the missing piece? Well, what a surprise!
