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

'Lynch's rich, atmospheric artwork perfectly complements Moore's beloved text.' The Bookseller

'This beautifully reimagined classic Christmas verse takes you on a journey through a snowy, candlelit world. P.J. Lynch’s intricate illustrations will captivate children and adults alike.' Preneur World
