Today’s book review is for Mouse’s Night Before Christmas by Tracey Corderoy. It was published by Nosy Crow on 3rd October 2019 and it can be purchased on Amazon*.
It’s Christmas Eve and everyone is fast asleep . . . except for a lonely mouse who lives in the grandfather clock. So when Santa arrives, lost in a blizzard, Mouse is the only one who can show him the way. Together they embark on a magical sleigh ride, delivering presents all around town. But the best present of all is for Mouse . . . a special friend to share Christmas Day with.
On the night before Christmas Mouse comes out from his clock to look at the big, beautiful Christmas tree. Mouse is quite lonely though, being there all his own so he climbs right up to the top of the tree and makes a wish on the star. Before long, Mouse hears a crash outside and hurries out to see what is going on.
Mouse’s Night Before Christmas is such a beautifully illustrated book and it really captures the magic of Christmas. From the opening pages where Mouse emerges quietly and slowly from the clock, you can really feel how he feels and the kind of life he lives. Looking at the size of Mouse compared to the huge Christmas tree was really something.
I really loved the magic and adventure in Mouse’s Night Before Christmas. From making a simple wish on a star to having a fun filled exciting time meeting Santa, this book has such a simple outlook on Christmas. What I especially liked that Mouse’s wish wasn’t for material objects and this is something really important for children to read about.
Mouse’s Night Before Christmas has such a simple idea behind it. It has a great message in the story and it’s such a lovely book to read at this time of year.
