About the Book

Anne Mortimer, author and illustrator of Pumpkin Cat and Bunny's Easter Egg, creates another holiday story. Christmas Mouse tells the story of a mouse getting ready for Christmas. Anne Mortimer's brightly colored and detailed paintings are full of festive energy, and the rhyming verse makes this a great read-aloud alternative to The Night Before Christmas.

There's much to do before Christmas comes! The tree needs decorating, lights need hanging, and carols must be sung. There are presents to leave for animal friends, treats to nibble on, and stockings to hang by the fire.

When everything is ready, Mouse makes a Christmas wish before snuggling down to sleep. Will Mouse's wish come true?

This cozy story for young readers celebrates the little things we do that make Christmas a magical time for all.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“Mortimer’s detailed, polished watercolors are captivating, with tiny surprises, such as the reflection of Santa in a shiny ornament or a gift tag with cat and mouse paw prints to identify recipient and giver...a very cute mouse having a very merry Christmas.” - Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Pumpkin Cat: “Mortimer’s naturalistic yet whimsical scenes exude old-fashioned Halloween charm.” - Publishers Weekly

Praise for Bunny’s Easter Egg: “This story reclaims some of the predictable and gentle humor that marks successful children’s books of the past. A fine addition to holiday collections.” - School Library Journal
