Jan Brett, Boston Pops Orchestra and Jim Dale

KIWI Magazine Review:
You just can’t go wrong with Jan Brett, but add in the Boston Pops and Jim Dale, and the collaboration becomes a must-have for every holiday collection. Clement Moore would be thrilled to see his world-famous poem in such glorious form. Jan Brett’s note in the beginning of the book details her love of this poem, and how she dreamed of illustrating this book based on the line, “Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.” Her imagination ran wild about how, perhaps, in the house there were no creatures about, but outside, the reindeer and wildlife were most definitely stirring.
