Buehner, Caralyn and Mark Merry Christmas Mr. Mouse. PICTURE BOOK. Dial (Penguin), 2015. $18.
Mr. Mouse has moved Mrs. Mouse and his 17 children into a warm home. When twinkling lights and new, good smells start to fill the home, he listens in one night to find out why things around the home seem to be so special. He decides he should share the celebration and the stories of this time with his mouse family.
I haven’t had time to sit down and inspect the illustrations, but I bet they are filled with Buehner’s signature hidden pictures. They have a special affinity for Christmas and that love still shows in this new creation.
