ABOUT THE BOOK: The original Night Before Christmas has taken an interesting turn and is now bears instead of humans with an exception of Jolly Old St. Nick himself. A perfect book for little kids.

MY REVIEW: I loved this book even if it was (totally not) too young for me so I absolutely have to give it five stars, a classic poem mixed with The Berenstain Bears, kind of. For a book so special I had to take the extra time to colour the words specially.  The pictures of children dreaming of sugar-plums and seeing jolly old St. Nick again really made me  excited about Christmas again.
