The Littlest Night Before Christmas

by Harper Collins


'Twas the night before Christmas,

and all through the house...

not a creature was stirring,

not even a mouse....

That may be how the classic Christmas poem begins, but in Mary Engelbreit’s latest reimagining of The Night Before Christmas, it’s a family of mice that take center stage when a jolly intruder squeezes into their tiny abode and makes himself known.

And though he looks like Santa—sack of toys, dressed in fur, telltale rosy cheeks—this isn’t the old St. Nick readers might expect! In this snow-covered forest, a whole host of woodland animals embody the beloved characters of the famous fabled Christmas Eve.
