    One thought on “A Creature Was Stirring”

    1. cute idea the original poem is on left pages, and a story about a little boy who is awake when Santa comes is on the right.

    2. I ve seen countless literary renditions of Clement Clarke Moore s A Visit from St Nicholas some of them even manage to get the title right So for one of those to pique my interest, it has to have something special riveting illustrations and or a stunning cover or a unique twist in the storyline The latter features in this tale, as we have one observer who breaks the rules about staying asleep during Santa s fateful visit.But wait a sec The original poem featured someone who was wide awake as wel [...]

    3. This was a very neatly written book It takes the traditional Twas the Night before Christmas and then puts a twist on it with a little boy not going to sleep and worrying about beign put on the naughty list and then sneaking out and getting into Santa s sled All written in rhyme and nicely done illustrations are great as well BUT the amazing thing about this book is you can read the left pages only and read the entire original Twas the Night Before Christmas story or you can read the right pages [...]

    4. What a fun twist on an old holiday classic My students are going to love this one Classroom Connections Every year one of my Christmas gifts to my students is to read them at least one extra Christmas story book per day Extra read aloud yay This one will be terrific for that Use for compare contrast with younger students with Moore s version Use in Writer s Workshop as an example of fracturing than fairy tales Use in Writer s Workshop as an Christmas story starter example Have each child write [...]

    5. I was really looking forward to reading this to my kids on Christmas Eve, I really wanted to like it It was meh The author mixes the original Clement Moore with an adapted version f a boy who couldn t fall asleep It just didn t mesh for me I think I would have just like the adapted version, with maybe a few lines of the original This version just felt to crowded to me The illustration are really nice though.

    6. Ages 4 8Cleanliness My gosh gosh and stupid are exclaimed christmas Like my reviews I also have hundreds of detailed reports that I offer too These reports give a complete break down of everything in the book, so you ll know just how clean it is or isn t I also have Clean Guides downloadable PDFs which enable you to clean up your book before reading it Visit my website The Book Radar.

    7. Framed by Clement C Moore s famous poem, this is an account of a little boy who finds himself in the predicament of being awake on Christmas Eve, hearing Santa arrive at his house It s a fun story and juxtaposed with the classic poem, it s a clever way to show the story from a different perspective Our girls enjoyed this story it s a good one to read aloud.

    8. Lovely illustrations, but not a great variation on the original Christmas classic The premise is intriguing, a child acknowledges that he IS awake and stirring as he awaits Santa s arrival But the ending is not satisfying The child seems to save the sleigh from slipping off his home s roof But how do the reindeer and Santa respond The book does not say Also the rhymes seem a bit forced.

    9. GR Level Elementary E GOOThey say that not a creature was stirring, but this poor boy never actually got to the part where the sugar plums were dancing Find out who is sneaking around and what he does to help Santa.

    10. OMG This is for sure a book that EVERY parent MUST read to their kids CTHU This was just way too cute I think this year for Christmas I ll be getting several extra copies and giving them as gifts

    11. Carter Goodrich, author of Say Hello to Zorro and Zorro Gets an Outfit, is rapidly becoming someone I will always read A new fun twist on the the classic The Night Before Christmas by Clement Moore with rhyming text and great illustrations This will be added to my collection at home.

    12. eh I m such a visual personand these drawings were nothing pleasing i really disliked that the boy called himself stupid and that santa smoked a piped my son even said he didn t look like santa thumbs down.

    13. I had to read this book, because I have so enjoyed the Zorro and Mister Bud books Carter Goodrich has also written this kid s take on Clement C Moore s Christmas poem when the boy can t sleep and accidentally sees Santa This may put him on the naughty list A funny story.

    14. Santa came to the library and my co worker and I read this book aloud together It s a cute spin on The Night Before Christmas good for 2 voices.

    15. I love the short happy Santa in this book The two different styles used work really well It s a really cute book.

    16. This was a fun surprise The book is beautiful with a cute story that runs along the famous classic by Clement C Moore.
