Welcome to a winter wonderland! Christmas is coming, but there's still so much to do! In their tiny village in the woods, Gregory Mouse and his family are just as busy as Santa and his elves. They have gingerbread houses to decorate, presents to wrap, cookies to bake, and snowy hills to sled—all before the celebration begins! This playful holiday alphabet book offers children a miniature world filled with wonderful details—a treat that could only come from Mary Engelbreit, the beloved artist whose bestselling edition of The Night Before Christmas is already a classic. Each letter of the alphabet presents objects and activities associated with the holiday as happy little mice characters prepare for Christmas. Not only do we see the family decorating the tree, baking cookies, and engaging in outdoor snow activities but we also see Santa and his elves at work. There are some clever touches in the illustrations, such as the acorn on the serving platter looking as if it were a roast turkey. Cuddly, expressive mice and a warm, cheerful tone to the text and illustrations reflect the ideals of the holiday season.
