The Night Before the Night Before Christmas

Author(s): Kes Gray; Claire Powell (Illustrator)

Children's Picture Books

Inspired by Clement C. Moore's classic festive poem, this hilarious Christmas tale is sure to have you ho ho ho-ing - written by the bestselling author of Oi Frog!.

Santa is ever so busy in the run up to Christmas - he's got presents to wrap, reindeer to wake and a sleigh to start. But has he forgotten something? And will he be ready in time?

'Twas the night before the night before Christmas
(That's Christmas Eve Eve)
And Santa was wiping his brow on his sleeve.
Green elves were sewing,
Blue elves were counting,
Red elves were carving,
The pressure was mounting!
