"The Knights Before Christmas" by Joan Holub

The Knights Before Christmas
by Joan Holub

Joan Holub's The Knights Before Christmas is recommended for children ages 4 to 8. This book blast and giveaway is brought to you by Mother Daughter Book Promotion Services.

‘Twas December 24th, and three brave knights were just settling in for the night when out on the drawbridge, there arose such a clatter! The knights try everything to get rid of this unknown invader (Santa Claus!), a red and white knight with a fleet of dragons ...
But nothing would stop
their white-whiskered foe.
No matter their efforts,
he just would not go!
This parody of Clement Clarke Moore’s well-known poem ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas is kid-friendly, clever, and just plain silly. Sure to become a holiday classic of a different kind!
