Little Mouse series – Book 3

Little Mouse has a long time to wait until Christmas! Luckily he has lots of things to do to get ready!

It’s almost Christmas and Little Mouse is looking forward to celebrating Christmas with Mummy Mouse and Grandpa and Grandma Mouse. But Christmas feels very far away and Little Mouse is very impatient!

Fortunately there are all kinds of things for Little Mouse to help with, like cooking gingerbread and choosing the right Christmas tree.


"Beautifully illustrated … put together with enormous charm. I rather want to be invited to Little Mouse’s Christmas." – Alex O’Connell, The Times

‘The illustrations inside are fantastic and provide a lot of talking points (I especially love the illustration of his bedroom…so many things to look at and talk about!) I think this is the perfect little story to read at bedtime and will make both parent and child giggle. Lovely!’ – Blabbering About Books
