Synopsis

Synopsis

“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.”

So begins the story of a little mouse’s search for a very special gift for a very special person. Nothing seems just right until the little mouse realizes that the best present of all is already at hand.

Palmer Brown has given us something special for Christmas—or any day—an entrancingly lovely story, filled with the true spirit of the holiday season.

"Here, the character of limited means is a small mouse, though his trouble is what to give rather than what to get, since “someone” (really his mother) seems to have everything….With exquisitely adorable creatures fit to rival Peter Rabbit, the book provides a predictable answer – love – that will make it no less enchanting to young children. Out of print for 45 years, the book was long a cherished favorite, memorably read aloud on television by Captain Kangaroo."— Pamela Paul, The New York Times



“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
