My whole family loved this book. It is an adaptation of the original Night Before Christmas by Clement Clarke Moore. The wording is modified slightly to have a more modern feel and the illustrations are all original and very beautiful. The story is told from the perspective of the house cat. I loved how my children were able to fall in love with a story that my own mother read to me many years ago. The original version of the poem is at the end of the book. This book was very well done and I'm very happy that I purchased it. It's worth every penny.
