Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Start spreading the news, Christmas done New York, New York-style dazzles two country mice. When the pine tree they call home is selected to adorn Rockefeller Center, Mr. and Mrs. Mouse get the chance to explore the Big Apple. Framed by snazzy holiday-motif borders, Krupinski's (A Visit from St. Nicholas) paintings light up a smattering of Manhattan sights. The mice-capades, which involve Mrs. Mouse's giving birth in a churchyard creche, grow a little formulaic, but Gotham enthusiasts are likely to enjoy this view of the city at its holiday best. Ages 4-8.

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2-Mr. and Mrs. Mouse find themselves in New York City when the huge tree in which they live is transported to Rockefeller Center. The country couple ventures out every evening to explore the sights until Mrs. Mouse gives birth on Christmas Eve in, yes, a churchyard manger-surrounded by angel mice. Decorated borders frame scenes of domestic life, including the infants being bottle-fed. When their tree comes down after the holidays, it is returned to the countryside, and the little creatures take up residence in a barn. A sweet family story about Christmas in Manhattan.-S. P.

My 4-year-old daughter loves this book. The illustrations are really lovely, and the story is sweet. It's also a good book to teach about some of the wonderful sights to see in the great city of New York. The mice really "do the town" right!
