5.0 out of 5 stars This version is a treasure far beyond the words., March 6, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Night Before Christmas (Hardcover)
My son is five and already an authority on Santa. We looked inside many books on The Night Before Christmas and he simply did not get into the pictures. Then we found this version illustrated by an artist who must have Santa in his heart. My son loves the full-page images of Santa and all the smaller images he calls "picture windows". He enjoys telling the story in his own words as he looks at each picture. I love the way the illustrations focus on evoking key sensations that add to the heart of the story. Thank you Mr. Tom Browning. You have made this story a treasure far beyond the words!

The reviews for this book seem to reference various versions of the book. Is the book that you purchased with the wonderful illustrations the version by Clement Moore illustrated by Mary Engelbreit? If not, who is the illustrator? Thanks!

I purchased the version illustrated by Mr. Tom Browning. The illustrations of Santa by Mr. Browning are by far the most true to visual capture of Santa's own character presence and more. His is the version for Santa fans!

I also own at least a half dozen versions illustrated by other artists. Each of these is more tuned to the respective illustrator's own style than to the story or its intent. This is great for fans of illustrative style. There is room for many such renditions once the story itself resonates at heart.

I hope this helps.
