Synopsis (from Goodreads): Marty is a little mouse who has lots of fun with his friends as they
get ready for Christmas. But when the house cats get involved, you can expect a little bit of mischief. Can Marty save the day in time for Christmas?
This is a really short picture book, so I’ll keep my review short as well.
What first grabbed my interest when it comes to this book is the art work on the cover.
That little mouse with a christmas hat and schal was just too cute to pass.
And let me tell you, the art work through the whole book is just plain beautiful.
This is a story about little mouse and his friends who are preparing a performance for Santa Claus.
The story itself is solid and I think many children will enjoy it.
I would recommend this book for parents with toddlers, to read it to them in an anticipation of Christmas.
I also think it is a great choice for kids who are just learning to read and for kids who are learning English as a foreign language.
