    Still a lovable classic!

    Twas the Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore has been edited to remove the reference to smoking in this lovable classic Christmas story! If you're like me, you would prefer not to portray to your children that Santa Claus is a smoker. The lines: "The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth, And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath" have been removed to benefit young readers. This book is beautifully illustrated and I love that there is a little note from Santa at the end, stating that he has left smoking behind, and couldn't be happier and healthier. What an awesome and beneficial change to this book! Great Job!

    Not for Nook Tablet

    Don't get this book if you plan on using on your Nook Tablet. It's slow and buggy. Also, it's just scans of the original book pages that don't fit on the Nook's screen.

    Clement C. Moore did not write the story as written in this book

    Clement C. Moore did not write the story as written in this book. My husband, if living today, would be heart broken
    to know that with all the changes it is not the writings of his Great Uncle. I will pass on buying the book for my
    Great nephews and niece and other children. I think the store should post a sign to say this is not the original
    version

    I loved this story and found this particular edition to be very colorful with lots of details for the enjoyment of the little kids I read to. I particularly liked the reindeer characters who are darling. This was a big hit with my classroom kids and I recommend it. I have the hardcover edition and will treasure it as a holiday tradition.
