Book giveaway: ‘Twas the Late Night of Christmas

‘Twas the late night of Christmas when all through the house,

Everyone was exhausted, even the mouse.


Instead of sugar plum fairies, parents see a giant mess and overwhelmed kids in this modern retelling of the classic ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas. What happens after Santa goes back home? What’s Mrs. Claus’s role in all this?


‘Twas the Late Night of Christmas is a funny, non-Norman Rockwell parallel look at the story we know so well.


Written by Ann Whitford Paul and with illustrations by Nancy Hayashi, ‘Twas the Late Night of Christmas is a picture book targeting parent readers and even older kids. My five-year-old liked the rhyming, but most of the ironic twists went right over her head. My 11-year-old, however, liked reading it and I did too.
