Author Info
Tomie De Paola
In addition to creating his own stories, Tomie dePaola is also well known for his retellings of folktales such as STREGA NONA: AN OLD TALE and FIN M'COUL: THE GIANT OF KNOCKMANY HILL, as well as his illustrations for the work of other authors such as Jean Fritz and Tony Johnston. dePaola has a B.F.A from Pratt Institute, a M.F.A. for the California College of Arts and Crafts, and a doctoral equivalency from Lone Mountain College. He entered a Benedictine monastery in Vermont for a short time after his graduation from college; many of his books reflect his interest in religion and spirituality. DePaola's works are noted for their conscious effort to avoid sexual stereotyping. In 2001 DePaola became the executive producer and star of the television program JIM HENSON'S TELLING STORIES WITH TOMIE DEPAOLA, a program intended to encourage children to use their imaginations and develop their own storytelling skills.
From the Publisher
Editors Note Presents Clement Moore's classic poem about a man who catches Santa going about his work on Christmas Eve. On board pages.
Annotation First published in 1823 as "A Visit from St. Nicholas," Clement Moore's much loved poem-- which is more often called "The Night Before Christmas"--is an enduring holiday classic. Before Disney and before Seuss, using rhyming couplets that are like vivid snapshots, Moore set down what soon became the standard Christmas-time references: a quiet house with the "stockings hung by the chimney with care"; Santa (here only called St. Nicholas), with his red face and round belly; and a miniature sleigh with "eight tiny reindeer," whom he names one by one. Moore's classic has been published in many formats, and its story has been interpreted and reinterpreted by authors and illustrators over the many years, to the delight of readers old and young.
