Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite Mrs. Mouse's Christmas is a children's picture book written and illustrated by R.W. Thompson. It's Christmas Eve and, as in the classic poem this story is based upon, everyone was tucked into bed and dreaming of the morning -- except for Mrs. Mouse. She was hard at work preparing the holiday meal for her guests when she discovered that there was nothing but vegetables in the pantry. While she had pizza, cake and fruit ready, and her table was all set, this meal would not be complete without milk and cheese. Mrs. Mouse searched high and low throughout the house looking for those necessary ingredients, but to no avail. Then she heard a scratching above the attic and, racing outdoors to see what was there, she discovered a team of reindeer on the roof of the house. She was thrilled to come back inside and see Santa by the hearth, piling up the gifts by the Christmas tree, but would he grant her Christmas wishes as well? R.W. Thompson's children's picture book, Mrs. Mouse's Christmas, is a heartwarming and joyful story for the holiday season. I enjoyed watching as Mrs. Mouse searches the rooms looking for cheese and milk, and appreciated the vivid imagery that fills this book, especially those pictures showing Mrs. Mouse as she searches. This is an excellent bedtime or story time offering for sharing with a young child, but it's also suitable for relatively new readers who can use the classic poem ''Twas the Night Before Christmas' and the illustrations to help them puzzle out any new and unfamiliar words and phrases. Mrs. Mouse's Christmas is a recommended seasonal offering.
