About this deal

Christmas Eve is all about traditions; cosying up by the fire with a hot mug of cocoa, and reading a good book.

The bloodthirsty biographies of the world’s most infamous pirates are reproduced in this Folio edition of Captain Charles Johnson’s renowned work, including original woodcut illustrations and a fascinating introduction by Margarette Lincoln. In 1842, the noted poet and editor William Cullen Bryant credited Moore as the author when he included the piece in an anthology of American poetry he had compiled. You guys were so fab and Dawn was such a lovely presence in the schools - I will absolutely be in touch next time I'm in your neck of the woods. By 1883, the Santa Claus made famous by Clement Moore's poem had reached his cultural ascendancy and was as much a part of the American Christmas as gift-giving. This special anniversary edition is a visual extravaganza, with 50 pages of full-colour illustrations by Ella Beech.However, Kaller notes, the source of evidence for Moore's supposed disapproval of tobacco is The Wine Drinker, another poem by him. Most of the colourful images are vivid and bright and do an excellent job of telling the tale of Santa Claus, his reindeer and sleigh visiting houses to deliver his presents to the children of the world. For more details, please consult the latest information provided by Royal Mail's International Incident Bulletin. This will be a great addition to your Christmas-themed curriculum, especially for reading or literature.

But I think the images are very well drawn, add to the mystery of the story and are very detailed – even if you do have to pay that bit more attention to the darkened scenes to take in the full picture. We learn in the introduction that this edition is a recreation of the 1954 book, considered the definitive interpretation.For Christmas Eve, Clement C Moore’s 1823 poem “’Twas The Night Before Christmas” is a must-read, and the great illustrator PJ Lynch has given us a version suffused with winter magic, all warmth and shivery loveliness, for ages 3 to 93. Your words, like your reviews, bring books to life and give them a voice before the front cover is even turned.

Your message can be written over two lines or, if it's a short message you're after, then just the one. Moore was also a professor of Oriental and Greek history at a theological college in New York, and served as a trustee of Columbia for several decades, but today is far better known for The Night Before Christmas, published anonymously in 1823 in the New York Sentinel and only acknowledged by Moore two decades later, claiming that he had written it to amuse his children for Christmas in 1822.
