Pennsylvania Dutch Night Before Christmas by Chet Williamson

This retelling of the Christmas classic by Clement C. Moore blends Santa Claus with the traditional Pennsylvania Dutch figure of the Belsnickel, a thin, cantankerous old man who visits children before Christmas and rewards, or punishes, them based on their behavior. The fun begins Christmas Eve when the Belsnickel arrives on an old-fashioned plow pulled by cows and steers. Havoc and humor erupt when the Yuletide load proves a little too heavy for the farmers roof! The distinctive Pennsylvania Dutch dialect and the hilarious antics of the crotchety old Belsnickel will make this new addition to Pelicans regional Night Before Christmas series a holiday favorite your family will enjoy reading aloud again and again.

Nothing is schusslich moving around , and all is well -- until they get a rude avakening -- er, awakening.

Thanks for the good words, Elam, and I'm glad you enjoyed the story, despite the several, um, linguistic impurities Merry Christmas! Chet Williamson. Post a Comment.
