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.
