Two Christmas Mice
Corinne Demas, , illus. by Stephanie Roth. . Holiday, $16.95 (32pp) ISBN 978-0-8234-1785-8
Mortimer has company in the cute mouse department as Annamouse and Willamouse each set about making things comfy for the holiday. Annamouse has a fine Christmas tree in her parlor, but no decorations while Willamouse has some paper chains with no tree on which to hang them. Both mice wistfully plan to make do until a snowstorm and a kind twist of fate bring these previously unknown neighbors together on Christmas Eve. The homey appointments of this mouse-centric world and the text's clever coincidences will make readers smile. Ages 4-8.
