In this charming holiday story, meet a tiny mouse with no name who is nevertheless blessed with a large imagination and a generous spirit. He lives a very lonely life in a very big house. He dearly loves Christmas and one Christmas Eve he surprises Santa Claus with a most unusual present.
How does this small mouse with a big heart become Santa’s special helper?
Written by Michael Brown and illustrated in a timeless style by Elfrieda De Witt, Santa Mouse is a Christmas family favorite that parents and grandparents are sure to share with their little ones.
The idea for writing the Santa Mouse stories came to Michael Brown while holding piece of children’s pajama fabric featuring a tiny Christmas mouse. He went to work creating the character that was to become Santa’s little helper. In addition to writing stories about Santa Mouse, Michael Brown performed his own songs in cabaret and was a composer/lyricist and producer/director in the theater.
When introduced to her art, Michael Brown immediately knew that Elfrieda De Witt would be the perfect choice of collaborator for his Santa Mouse stories. Her style perfectly captured the spirit of Christmas. Known affectionately as “Freddie” by friends and family, Elfrieda spent much of her career illustrating for greeting card companies. Brown and De Witt continued their friendship for many years after the publication of the Santa Mouse books.
