Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nicole Peterson Davis
Cat sees Mouse take one of Santa’s Christmas cookies. So, Cat follows Mouse and says “Stop, Mouse” through the house. We see cat and mouse going on the tree, in stockings, on the train, and even in a miniature sleigh. All of the time, we assume that Cat wants to get Santa’s cookie back to give to him. However, at the end of the book we see that Cat just wants to give Mouse a Christmas present. In return, Mouse gives the cookie back to Cat and Cat eats it. This is a clever Christmas picture book with a simple story that is told mostly by the illustrations. Young children will have fun finding the mouse on each page; while he is not hidden, he is in a different spot on each illustration. Even older children will be surprised at the ending of this vibrant book. Reviewer: Nicole Peterson Davis; Ages 3 to 6.
