The Knights Before Christmas


The Knights Before Christmas
By Joan Holub
Illustrated by Scott Magoon
Henry Holt and Company, 2015. Picture Book.

Three clueless knights (in the vein of Amelia Bedelia) defend their castle on Christmas Eve against a white bearded invader wearing a red suit. Using many Christmas references (especially new takes on songs), this humorous parody of Clement Moore’s ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas will have the entire family laughing. I highly recommend reading this picture book this holiday season. It’s definitely on my Christmas wish list.
