Barbara Reid's illustrations are amazing!

The night before Christmas is a Christmas poetry book. The story explains how children wait on Santa Claus to come visit their home at night. The children go to bed early and have sweet dreams. Santa finally arrives to the home and makes quite a ruckus as he arrives. The children spring out of their beds, and run to the window to see Santa and his reindeer. Santa then calls each reindeer by name, and Santa has the reindeer go to the top of the house. Santa then comes down the Chimney, and is covered in soot. The poem then explains how Santa appears; dimples, cherry nose, and a white beard are some of Santa’s physical characteristics. Santa then goes to work by filling up the stockings. He then turns and leaves the home and dashes away with the reindeer in the night.

Is there something strange going on here? Unless my eyes are playing tricks on me, the picture of the cover of this book says, "Illustrated by Tasha Tudor." However, the Full Description tells us this book is illustrated by Ted Rand...

Will Moses may be the great grandson of Grandma Moses, but his artistic achievement stands on its own merit. Each page of this delightful confection brings out the true wonder of the season and the Christmas spirit of the famous poem. Opening the book is like opening a present ? the reader comes across double pages of gorgeous recreations of Christmas in the country and all the anticipation and joy that make this season so special. Terrific for reading aloud to any age.
