Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

'Twas The Night Before Christmas (or, A Visit From St. Nicholas)

The Night Before Christmas - Niroot Puttapipat, Clement C. Moore

A classic, and a personal favorite of mine as a child.


This gem is the result of me trying to Christmas shop for others in a bookstore.  I did get Christmas presents for everyone; I just included myself in the "everyone". 


The book's illustrations are block-print style and the cutouts are beautifully done and cleverly positions to make the most of the illustrations.  The very last page has an intricate, delicate, pop-up display of Santa and his reindeer over the city skyline.  I absolutely love it.


You're just never too old for pop-up books.
