Beginning with echoes of Clement C. Moore's "The Night before Christmas," this picture book tells of a little mouse exploring the decorated living room and discovering one mysterious new thing after another. Each find excites the senses: cookies "sweet and sparkly," cocoa "warm and melty," and a tree "tall and prickly." Finally he encounters Santa Claus, who whispers, "Tis your very first Christmas and all through the house no one is loved more than you, . . . little mouse." The appeal to the senses, the urge to explore, and the final reassuring message will strike a chord in young children. The painterly artwork will resonate, too, with its simplicity of images, warmth of colors, and mysterious play of light and shadow. An appealing choice for the very young. Carolyn Phelan
