9780330523936: Another Night Before Christmas

On the night before Christmas, a child in a house,as the whole family slept, behaved just like a mouse, and crept on soft toes down red-carpeted stairs.Her hand held the paw of her favourite bear...In 1822 Clement Moore wrote a poem about Christmas for his children. 'The Night Before Christmas' soon became a Christmas classic.Now one of Britiain's best-loved poets has rewritten the poem for the twenty-first century. This new version is full of Carol Ann Duffy's characteristic wit and warmth. Illustrated by one of the most exciting illustrators of the moment, this edition is destined to become a classic in its own right.

But she deserves better. She deserves to outsell most of the novelists on your shelf...Non-poetry readers should read Duffy; non-readers should read her. But, most of all, novelists should read her. If she frightens enough of them into non-production, she'll sell in the quantites she deserves' -- Observer 20051204 'Duffy's poetics are flawless - she never misses a beat, her pace is exhilarating, and her language is original and exciting' -- Scotsman 20051204 Praise for 'New Selected Poems 1984-2004' 'Carol Ann Duffy seems at the peak of a thoroughly assured reputation' -- Sunday Telegraph 20051204 'This week's must-read book' -- The Daily Telegraph 20051204 'Duffy's poetics are flawless - she never misses a beat, her pace is exhilarating, and her language is original and exciting ... Duffy's splendid updating of Clement Moore's famous Victorian poem ... remains true to the spirit of the original ... Marc Boutavant's atmospheric 1950s-style illustrations positively glow with Christmas cheer' -- The Scotsman 20051204 'A delightful reworking of the 1822 Clement Moore original ... with charming illustrations from Frenchman Marc Boutavant. This one of those rare wee gems from a much-loved poet' -- The Glasgow Herald 20051204
