The most beautiful and complete illustrations of any version of this story that I have seen. The story is especially dear to me, as I had memorized the poem before I could read, and my parents thought I was reading it. Truly the best version of this book!!

The illustrations of this classictale rendered by Ms. Harness arequite charming. This is a truepicture book, in a large-size format,that invites careful and repeatedviewings of the full colorillustrations. For instance, theangel on the Christmas tree changes,moves, when ol' St.Nick arrives. The family cat and dog welcome Santa,and the artist included severalheart-warming ideas in herinterpretation. This is a fun bookfor seeking out detail and young andold alike will be delighted by whatis depicted. Collectors of picturebooks will want to add this one totheir collection. Skillful renderingsand charming ideas sums up the book.Highly recommended.

The pictures in this version of the classic tale establish a Victorian American setting. The scenes are truly beautiful to behold. It is delightful!
