From his home beneath the piano, Emmitt Mouse listens as Mrs. Oliver reads Christmas stories to her children. Inspired to throw a party for his own family, Emmitt gathers crumbs from beneath the dining room table. Then his gaze falls on the Christmas tree. Can Emmitt sneak past Ike the Cat and avoid the sharp eyes of Baby Gracie in order to retrieve the perfect mouse-sized Santa Hat from one of the Christmas tree packages?

“EMMITT MOUSE PLAYS SANTA is a delightful book. The story is perfect for children of all ages. I’m sure mothers will be happy to read this to children – over and over again. The story will ensure that this will become a Christmas classic, but the illustrations put it in a class by itself. I have never seen illustrations that fit the story any better nor have I seen any that were as lovely. I’m still wondering how the illustrator made a mouse look so nice.” ~ reviewed by Sarah Jane Rodgers [FIVE STARS]
