In this version of Clement Moore's famous 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, it is the mice who are the featured characters.
Even readers who know the story will enjoy exploring the illustrations in this Christmas classic.
The first thing our daughter noticed was the shooting star on the end paper. For her, the book was all about the illustrations and the re-purposing of objects for the miniature home of the Mouse family.
How cute! The illustrations are amazing, and I had fun with my daughter exploring all of the objects that found new life in the Mouse family home. I also loved that the whole family saw Santa, not just Papa.
Lifelike illustrations guide readers through this classic Christmas story.
This is a story to enjoy sharing together. Take time to explore the images and discover how many "human" things the mice use in their home.
