about this book

“What are you doing, dear?”
“It’s a secret.”
“Secrets are better if you share them a little. So tell Mother why you look so sad on Christmas Eve.”
“I am wondering what to give–someone–for Christmas.”
This is the story of a little mouse’s search for a very special gift for a very special person. Nothing seemed just right. Then the little mouse realized that the very best present of all was already at hand. Once again Palmer Brown has written and illustrated an entrancingly lovely story, filled with the true spirit of Christmas.

“In Something for Christmas Palmer Brown tells and illustrates with charming pictures in pastel colors an endearing tale about a small mouse who wonders what to give his mother for Christmas and a mother who knows what is the best gift of all–one’s love!” –Polly Goodwin, Chicago Daily Tribune
