St. Nick and eight tiny reindeer descend through a brilliant night sky, and so the famous Christmas poem begins. Jan Brett captures the spirit of Clement Moore's classic poem in glorious illustrations. As St. Nick goes to work, he doesn't realize there are two stowaways from the North Pole exploring the sacks of gifts on the roof! A unique and beautiful edition, which all the family will cherish for years to come.
