Rediscover a Children's Classic with a powerful message that will delight young readers
November 21, 2012 (Newswire) - Nearly 30 years since it first came to print, The Christmas Mice by John White with beautiful illustrations by Dorothy L. Hall is made available again by New York-based Cosimo Books.
The holiday season and Christmas time is the perfect occasion to relaunch The Christmas Mice, a heartwarming story of love and acceptance, symbolized by the two mice Roger and Emily. The two mice are outcasts from their community of meadow mice because they are different: one is green, the other is red - the colors of Christmas. They spent their lives dreaming of being accepted by the rest of the mice. Encouraged by the birth of his children and the beauty of the Christmas tree, Roger teaches the rest of the mice an important lesson about love and brotherhood. The Christmas Mice is a touching and beautifully illustrated tale with a powerful message that will delight young readers of all ages.
"The Christmas Mice is not just another Christmas story! It's a children's classic in which peace and brotherhood take on new meaning as Roger, Emily, and the mice community learn 'people lessons' of trying to live harmoniously."
-Stillpoint Publishing News
"There are still books-lavishly illustrated books-that invite quiet times that will be remembered long after the batteries on some of the toys have run down."
-The Hartford Courant
