KIRKUS REVIEW

The story of the birth of Clement C. Moore's immortal Visit from St. Nicholas in a friendly little story of the Moore household in what is now part of New York City, of the preparations for Christmas, of Peter the Hollander who drove Professor Moore to town and gave him the inspiration for his St. Nicholas character. Good period picture and the spirit of the time and setting are caught in Flavia Gag's pictures, reproduced in line and color. Good reading aloud book for the holiday season.
