    I've kept about 4 different illustrated versions of Clement C. Moore's Night Before Christmas. This one's my favorite! Copyright 1985. Santa wears cowboy boots! Love the cats, chickens & bulldogs! A mouse taking photos! Santa raids the fridge! Great fun ;)

    Well, I can't tell if this links to the right one or not, because the reviews (customer and professional) talk about a zillion different illustrators. My copy is illustrated by James Marshall, and it cracks me up. There are random bulldogs, mice, cats, and chickens sitting about the house, and Santa raids the refrigerator, among other things. I'd say it's my favorite of our versions of this poem.

    I had to give up after searching a few pages for this edition: Christmas Tree Books - Pictures by Diane deGroat - Troll Associates(mini book)1990 - Mahwah NJ Of course it read it many years ago in childhood too. I picked this up at the town transfer station, a veritable gold mine of books. I'm going to write a couple of trivia questions
