This Christmas, be charmed by a classic: an enchanting iPad adaptation of the timeless poem “Twas The Night Before Christmas”.
This classic tale has been brought to life through a new animated book experience. The beautiful, original 1912 illustrations by Jessie Willcox Smith have been cleverly and painstakingly animated bringing 21st Century life to this classic poem for children and adults alike. The original typography has also been maintained.
The only book this Christmas that comes in a virtual gift-wrapped box. The only book with a cover that shines when tilted!
Watch as Santa’s sleigh comes into sight, hear Saint Nicholas’s hearty “Ho Ho Ho” as you tap him on the belly, sit by the roaring fire before riding off into the magical winter wonderland with Santa!
You’ll love the realistic page turns, authentic text, optional narration and sound effects. Even the stockings sway when you tilt them! Plus, the book contains the biographies of author, illustrator and Santa, plus the history of the original book.
Sure to charm even the hardest Scrooge this Christmas.
