"The Night Before Christmas In Texas That Is" written by Leon A. Harris and illustrated by Meg Wohlberg. Published by Pelican Publishing Company, copyright 1983.
This delightfully clever tale, based on the classic Clement Moore story of jolly St. Nick's annual Christmas Eve flight first published in 1952, continues to entertain youngsters and adults alike.
A western Santa Claus-decked out in Levis, ten-gallon Stetson, cowboy vest, and with a bandana around his neck , this Texas version of St Nick, makes his Christmas journey on a buckboard piled high with presents.
Swooping in over the prairie, to the amazement of sleepy residents and jack rabbits alike, the plump, jovial Texas Santa parks his buckboard outside a peaceful ranch house. On entering he spies the children's boots that have been hung carefully at the foot of their bunk bed, and stuffs them full of toys and other gifts.
Hard cover book in good condition with no rips, tears or writing. The dust jacket has moderate wear.
