    Description`Twas the Night Before Christmas` is edited by Santa Claus for the benefit of children of the twenty-first century. Letter from Santa Claus: In this special twenty-first-century edition, selected lines have quietly slipped from the pages. Here at the North Pole, we decided to leave all of that tired old business of smoking well behind us a long time ago. The reindeer also asked that I confirm that I have only ever worn faux fur out of respect for endangered species. Publishers note: It was our sincere pleasure to act on Santa's express wishes. As the direct link between the exposure to the depiction of characters smoking and youth initiation to nicotine has been well established, we were compelled to make these recommended changes.

    Author Information
    Clement C. Moore (1779-1863) is widely regarded as the very poet of Christmas Eve. Much of the way we have come to celebrate December 24 is based on Moore's portrayal of a jolly Santa who, along with his team of reindeer, brings happiness to children and joy to the world. `Twas the Night Before Christmas` was originally published in the `New York Troy Sentinel` newspaper in 1823. It has become the most famous poem in the English language. In 2011, various editions of this enchanting poem spent thirty-six weeks on the `New York Times` best-sellers list under the children's category.
    Review quote
    Winner of 4 IBPA 2013 Benjamin Franklin Awards, including first place best cover, Moonbeam Children's Book Awards 2012 Gold Medal best holiday book, first place at the Global International Ebook Awards best Christian children's title, gold place for the Mom's Choice Awards in 2013. The edition is the first in the poem's 190 history to present Santa Claus as smoke-less. This small yet significant edit captured international media attention including the New York Post, Associated Press, NBC Nightly News, The Colbert Report and The View. The debate over the edit went to the airwaves, including the BBC, and National Public Radio. The book became a *bestseller on Amazon.com in both 2012 and 2013 with hundreds of positive reviews to its credit. Over 1,000 children aged 3-7 were interviewed about smoking and the result was that 98% of them wished no one smoked. This was produced with these children in mind. Positive reviews: Kirkus, Midwest Book Review, Resources Children's Literature Journal.
