The latest heart-warming book in the Guinea Pig Classics series. ''Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse' But sit down by the fire with some chocolates to hand, And you'll be welcomed into a magical land. There is snow and some moonlight; St Nick in his sleigh; There are reindeer and elves, and guinea pigs! Hooray! This classic Christmas poem, now told by guinea pigs, Will surely delight all with their costumes and wigs. For nothing's more charming than a pig in a hat, Especially a Christmas one, that's just a fact.

Clement Clarke Moore was a scholar of ancient languages, but is remembered to this day for his memorable poem 'The Night Before Christmas', which started appeared anonymously in newspapers in the 1820s. His character of St Nicholas strongly influenced the character of Santa Claus that we know today, and reading aloud the poem remains a favourite Christmas tradition. Tess Newall is a set designer who specialises in fashion shoots and decorative painting. She carefully stitched and painted each tiny detail in A Guinea Pig Night Before Christmas, creating a small but perfectly formed vision of Christmas Eve in a guinea pigs's home.
