When Father Mouse is awakened on Christmas Eve by a clatter outside his window, he catches a glimpse of the one and only Santa Claus! Father Mouse can hardly believe his eyes as he watches St. Nick come down the chimney with a pack full of toys. In this amusing twist on the classic poem by Clement C. Moore, Daniel Kirk reimagines the story from a fresh perspective—and readers of Kirk’s Library Mouse series may discover a familiar friend, too!


"The illustrations are attractively composed, with textural highlights and speckles of snow in dark blue skies...Library Mouse fans will enjoy this peripheral extension of the series."
Kirkus Reviews
" of Kirk and the “Library Mouse” series will enjoy this charming take on the classic poem."
School Library Journal
