Together they embark on a magical sleigh ride, delivering presents all around town. But the best present of all is for Mouse … a special friend to share Christmas Day with.
This book is suitable for children between 3 and 6 years of age.
Tracey Corderoy grew up in South Wales, on a council estate firmly sandwiched between the steel and chemical works. She’s a trained teacher but now writes full-time in an old damp cottage on the Gloucestershire hills. A multi award-winning author, her first book was published in 2010, and in December 2019, her 70th. As a young child, Tracey owned few books. But thanks to an ancient set of encyclopaedias she happened upon, and a Ladybird copy of Cinderella, her passion for nosing into other people’s ‘stories’ began early on!
Some years later, one very special Secondary School teacher and many great librarians, fed Tracey more and more books. Between their pages real magic then started to happen. Impossible adventures became do-able. Characters became friends. Boundaries became gates as her world, very slowly, opened up. Books made her laugh and cry and think. They made her feel that – maybe she could do things.
Sarah Massini has always loved to draw. Her mother said it was a blessing how paper and a pencil could keep her quiet and out of mischief for hours. Drawing has been a lifelong habit that has seen her through careers in corporate design, children’s book design and now as a successful illustrator … and illustrating is what she loves doing best.
