Read an Excerpt

"Charles Santore's breathtaking [books] include the nostalgia-laden The Night Before Christmas, a Snow White whose evil queen exhibits the kind of chilling sensuality we associate with Swinburne's poetry, The Wizard of Oz wonderfully reimagined, and a rumbustious Aesop's Fables, as well as half dozen other children's favorites."
— Michael Dirda, The Washington Post
