Meet the Author

Tomie De Paola is internationally recognized for having written and illustrated many children's books, including "The Lady of Guadalupe", "The Clown of God", "Cat on the Doverfell", "Big Anthony and the Magic Ring", and "Strega Nona", a Caldecott Honor book.
Using watercolours and inks in this book to create full-colour illustrations, Mr. de Paola is faithful to the text. Since St. Nicholas is described in the poem as "a right jolly old elf," the artist has made him elflike, and shows him driving a miniature sleigh with eight tiny reindeer. Mr. de Paola has set the poem in a mid-nineteenth century New England town, using quilt designs from his own collection for the borders.
This is the 100th book he has illustrated.

Tomie dePaola writes so well that children are drawn into the story, no matter the subject, and his illustrations are very appealing which only enhances the experience.

The book is just so wonderful and inspiring. I loved this book so much that i went out into a meadow full of daisies and read it over and over. I looked up at the sky and wondered how ever could God created such beautiful figures. I thought wow! and just think all of these white fluffy clouds are made up of evaporated water. When i was little i always wanted to go up into the clouds and sit next to the angels in my dreams. I loved my childhood. This book was once again inspiring and full of creativeness. I have to say Thank you to the author, and I hope all the people who read this will love it as much as I did. Love, Sheri
