It’s two days before Christmas and a quiet Rhode Island town is about to be visited by a number of unexpected guests, among them a pair of very different Krampuses, not to mention a few Beasties. Are they there to protect Christoph, or to exact revenge with the aid of a heartless and monstrous Wolf? Some curses fade over time, others grow stronger. In this homage to Dickens’s A Christmas Carol, Christoph and his friends must find some way to atone for a wrong committed a generation before they were born.
“A wicked good story that will appeal to readers of all ages. Destined to become a Christmas classic—excuse me, a Krampus classic!”
— Rodman Philbrick, Newbery Honor Author
“Peter Johnson’s The Night Before Krampus takes readers through the twisting streets of the other side of Christmas. Will Christoph beat his family’s curse and solve the mystery? Or will the Wolf, also known as Revenge, live up to his name? Part mystery, part myth, this book will scare the Dickens out of readers, while at the same time make them want to wish each other a ‘Merry Krampus.’”
