It was the middle of the night. And the night of all nights it was Christmas.

In the big, quiet house where parents are sleeping, the children wait and listen, thinking of reindeer and angels and stars. Then, with no sound but their own thumping hearts, the children creep downstairs to see the glorious tree and to make a Christmas wish.

Margaret Wise Brown's magical story captures all the wonder and mystery of a child's Christmas Eve. Nancy Edwards Calder's exquisite paintings highlight all the detail that make this night so special.Christmas Eve has never been so beautiful as in this luminous re-illustration of Margaret Wise Brown’ s classic text of three children delighting in the splendor and magic of a traditional Christmas Eve.Glorious paintings by Nancy Edwards Calder bring a glow to each page that captures the warmth and anticipation of this very special night.
