Nothing so bespeaks Christmas as Clement C. Moore s classic poem. Ted Rand has illustrated it with lush pictures of the era in which it was written. St. Nicholas, resplendent in his suit of red, is the very picture of Moore s jolly old elf. While paying faithful tribute to the smallest detail of the beloved myth, the artist infuses it with magical new life, creating a holiday treasure that families will share and delight in for generations to come."
