First edition of this vibrant McLoughlin publication, illustrating Moore's NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS alongside two amusing sequels of their own invention.
Very good plus.
Have you ever wondered about the events that follow Clement Moore's beloved THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS? The McLoughlin Brothers did as well, so they penned an original sequel: "The Day After Christmas." This more practical poem finds St. Nicholas recast as white-bearded Dr. Brough, come to offer children relief from their candy-induced stomach aches after the holiday festivities. Instead of sugarplums, Dr. Brough invites visions of a castor oil bottle with fairy wings and a humanized pill. "These feastings and candies make Doctors' bills right," he exclaims, as he leaves for the next house of over-indulgent kids. A creative take on the Christmas classic.
