Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Rich shades of evergreen, cranberry and midnight blue thinly applied to canvas form the inviting backdrop for this tale of a curious young mouse who explores the sensory delights of Christmas Eve, from things that are "sweet and sparkly" (a cookie) to "jingly and glinty" (a jingle bell)--even "whiskery and jolly" (guess who?). Thompson's dynamic phrasing is amplified by Erdogan's large-scale compositions and by the type design ("It was a cookie" is set as a circle; the line "It was a jingle bell" curves like an arc). The debut author and artist make much from a simple premise. Ages 2-6. (Oct.) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Publishers Weekly
"Clement C. Moore to the contrary, a curious mouse is indeed stirring in this tale," noted PW. Ages 2-6. (Oct.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

Mouse's first Christmas is an incredible childrens book. It is best explained in a very popular saying,'short and sweet.' This book may only be thirty pages long but, it is full of smiles and truley gives off a feeling of Christmas and captures winter at its best. Mouse's First Christmas is a wonderful family book, and I highly reccomend it to all book lovers and those who aren't book lovers will be after reading this one!
