Reviews

'Stunningly atmospheric art also abounds in PJ Lynch’s illustration of the classic Christmas verse ’Twas the Night Before Christmas’. A book to treasure forever.' The Irish Independent

'For Christmas Eve, Clement C Moore’s 1823 poem “’Twas The Night Before Christmas” is a must-read, and the great illustrator PJ Lynch has given us a version suffused with winter magic, all warmth and shivery loveliness, for ages 3 to 93.' New Statesman

' beautiful reinterpretation […] Lynch, Ireland’s fourth Laureate na nÓg for children’s literature has used a dark Victorian palette lit up like a Vermeer by the glow of snow and candle flame. The pair go together like turkey and cranberry sauce. To be read on Christmas Eve with lashings of nostalgia. ' The Times

' a stunning new version of the Christmas classic by an award-winning Irish illustrator ' The Irish Independent

' a long time seasonal favourite ' The Irish Catholic
