The Christmas Mouse

(1996)
A Picture Book by

 
 
Based upon Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, this is the story of Ben, a greedy mouse to whom Christmas means nothing. Then, on Christmas Eve a stranger offers him the challenge of a night-time quest and the chance to discover the true meaning of Christmas and friendship. As the night wears on, Ben starts to realise that perhaps his view of Christmas requires an adjustment.

Accompanied by Ruth Brown's atmospheric and detailed illustrations, in which Ben's story and Scrooge's story are intertwined, Toby Forward's simple, lyrical text brings home the importance of friendship and of caring for each other at Christmas, and at every other time of the year. This is a very special picture book which brings the message of Dickens' classic to a new and younger audience. --Philippa Reece
