Publishers Weekly
The team behind The Very Noisy Night chronicles Little Mouse's quest for the perfect holly sprig and his experience of snow for the first time in The Very Snowy Christmas by Diana Hendry, illus. by Jane Chapman. Who's making those mouse tracks behind him? And what is that scary white monster in front of the door? Big Mouse explains it all away, just in time for a "holly jolly, jolly holly Christmas!"

The cover is quite tactile with lots of silver glitter in the title and around the window that Little Mouse is gazing from. It is Christmas Eve and Big Mouse is very busy making cheese pies while Little Mouse is making decorations. Together they started putting ornaments on the tree, but Little Mouse realizes that there is no holly, so off he goes to get holly with beautiful red berries. What happens on this adventure will amuse kids in the northern states and intrigue those in warmer climes. It starts to snow and Little Mouse thinks that the sky is falling. He is frightened by his reflections in the pond, the trail that his footsteps leave, and just when he thinks he is safely home, a monster seems to be waiting for him. It all turns out fine as Big Mouse explains about snow and dispels all the other fears that Little Mouse ran from. It ends on a comfy note with the two sitting in front of a warm fire waiting for Christmas Day. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
