It's the night before Christmas, deep under the sea. Seashells are hung on coral with love while vision of periwinkles swim through mermaids' heads. A lobster is about to doze off too when old Saint Nick appears in a huge conch shell sleigh pulled by eight lively sea horses! The jolly walrus bestows his gifts and soars out of sight with a timeless message about happiness and love. Clement C. Moore's classic poem, reimagined in a magical underwater setting, is a rollicking way to welcome Christmas.

About the Author

Those two divergent worlds merged, and this tale was born! She lives in Massachusetts with her husband.

Dan Andreasen has illustrated many books, including Margaret Wise Brown's Sailor Boy Jig, William Anderson's Pioneer Girl: The Story of Laura Ingalls Wilder, and the American Girls series starring Felicity and Samantha. He lives in Orlando, Florida.
