Santore has illustrated many classic stories, including Snow White, The Wizard of Oz, and The Little Mermaid, and he now brings to life Moore's A Visit from St. Nicholas in characteristically elegant and detail-rich paintings. His is a very traditional vision, as he brings readers inside a stately colonial home, tastefully appointed with wreaths, garlands, and stockings. In a particularly nice bit of design, when the narrator Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash, readers can do the same, opening a double-page gatefold that reveals a quiet village blanketed by snow and a sleigh silhouetted against the moon. It's a gorgeous interpretation of a beloved holiday classic. All ages. Publisher's Weekly, starred review.
