This book was great fun to create! A tree branch falls and ruins mouse's cozy home in the snowy woods, so she packs her sled and follows a light far away. After a long journey she peeks in a window and sees her new home, just her size - a gingerbread house. Mouse makes a bed and furniture from candy canes, gum drops, licorice sticks, and wrapping supplies. When she peers out of her window, she sees Christmas for the first time as the family decorates the tree and hangs stockings; the reader sees Christmas from mouse's point of view. The book includes a yummy gingerbread cookie recipe for baking and decorating with hungry readers after the story.
