BBC7 Big Toe Books - a lovely story in a poem:

Description: On the night before Christmas, a child in a house,as the whole family slept, behaved just like a mouse, and crept on soft toes down red-carpeted stairs.Her hand held the paw of her favourite bear...In 1822 Clement Moore wrote a poem about Christmas for his children. 'The Night Before Christmas' soon became a Christmas classic.Now one of Britiain's best-loved poets has rewritten the poem for the twenty-first century. This new version is full of Carol Ann Duffy's characteristic wit and warmth. Illustrated by one of the most exciting illustrators of the moment, this edition is destined to become a classic in its own right.
