Editorial Reviews

Review

"Santore has illustrated many classic stories, including Snow White, The Wizard of Oz, and The Little Mermaid, and he now brings to life Moore’s 'A Visit from St. Nicholas' in characteristically elegant and detail-rich paintings. His is a very traditional vision, as he brings readers inside a stately colonial home, tastefully appointed with wreaths, garlands, and stockings. In a particularly nice bit of design, when the narrator 'Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash,' readers can do the same, opening a double-page gatefold that reveals a quiet village blanketed by snow—and a sleigh silhouetted against the moon. It’s a gorgeous interpretation of a beloved holiday classic. All ages. (Oct.)"
--Publisher's Weekly, starred review

About the Author

Charles Santore renowned illustrations have been widely exhibited in museums and celebrated with recognitions such as the prestigious Hamilton King Award, the Society of Illustrators Award of Excellence, and the Original Art 2000 Gold Medal from the Society of Illustrators. Santore is best known for his luminous interpretations of classic children’s stories such as Snow White, The Night Before Christmas and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s Paul Revere’s Ride, which was named 2004 Children’s Book of the Year for Poetry by the Bank Street College Children’s Book Committee. His illustrations for The Wizard of Oz, which is widely considered to be the quintessential illustrated version, were used as the scenic backdrops for a major television performance of the work.

Clement Clarke Moore, (1779-1863), was a professor at New York City's General Theological Seminary (built on land donated by his father) who, in an 1836 reprint of A Visit From St. Nicholas (more commonly known today as Twas the Night Before Christmas), was first credited as the author of the poem, and later included it in an anthology of his work.

5.0 out of 5 stars “The Night Before Christmas” poem and coloring book in one – designs printed on one side of the page (text on back of page)
By iiiireader on September 18, 2017
This is a wonderful entry in the series of Classic Coloring books featuring the artwork of Charles Santore. The poem is by Clement C. Moore and the illustrations are by Charles Santore. Along with the poem and the designs, there are small color pictures from the illustrated version of this book on the inside front and back covers. That way, you can use similar colors if you so choose.

The coloring book is a larger than standard format. The designs are mostly done in line drawing form with some designs having considerable shading included. Those few images border on the edge of being grayscale designs.

The poem and illustrations are set up in true storybook style, with the text on the left hand side (back of page) and the illustration to the right. The illustrations match well with the text on the facing page with a lot of emphasis on images of Santa.

Some mediums will bleed through the page (see below), which will interfere with the text but if that doesn't bother you, you can treat the book as if the designs were one sided.

This is what I found while coloring in the book and testing my coloring medium on the paper:

23 Designs inspired by the famous poem “The Night Before Christmas”. Illustrations are by Charles Santore.

Designs printed on one side of the page with storybook text on the back.

Paper is white, every so slightly rough to touch, medium weight and non-perforated

Hybrid glue and sewn binding (lots of small stitches.) You cannot snip threads to remove pages from the book.

Designs stop short of the binding and have a framing line at the outer edges

Book opens easily to flat position for ease of coloring.

Alcohol-based markers bleed through the page

Water-based markers and India ink markers leave a slight colorful shadow on the back of the page.

Gel pens do not bleed through an left an indistinct shadow on the back of the page.

Colored pencils did well with this paper. I tested both oil and wax based pencils. I was easily able to get good pigment with multiple layers of the same color. I also was able to layer multiple colors and blend well using a blender stick.

Beautifully illustrated story of the classical Night before Christmas poem. Must have in any Christmas collection, young and old!
Love the old fashioned illustrations, the stocking, the woman in bed with her satin bonnet kerchief and man with his sleeping cap. The illustrations of Santa Claus and his reindeer are wonderful. Only part I'm not found of is the illustration of Santa smoking his pipe. It fits in with the poem but don't think it was necessary to labour the smoke plume over two pages. 2.5 year old attention to detail didn't miss a beat! Overall a beautiful addition to our Christmas book collection.

Artwork is good, nice size but unfortunately there is a misprint. "On, Donder and Blitzen!" What a let down. I was hoping it was going to be something to keep and give to my Kids but not now! Quite disappointed at such a simple error that could have easily been avoided! Must have just rushed it together, a quick publish for a quick buck over Christmas!
