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. 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

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!

Twas the Night Before Christmas I found this book for free on Amazon and thought it was really interesting that this book had the part of smoking edited, by Santa Claus himself, out of the story.  That was one of the things that always got me thinking when I was younger about the original - my parents smoked for awhile, my sister does now, but I never have and always thought it was disgusting that he did.   This is one of my favorite Christmas stories - beautifully done with some amazing illustrations.  Definitely a must for people who love Christmas books, especially this story, and so worth what the author is selling it for.

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.
