Beautiful artwork and sweet story. My kids love this book! Instead of spending on Christmas decor, I decided to spend a little each year on books/ toys that teach the true meaning of Christmas. We'll store this book with our holiday decorations so it is treasured each year with newness.

I originally ordered this book to go along with the tape that I already had. It does not match up exactly to the tape, but it is a nice book. The illustrations are also very well done.

The Little Drummer Mouse by Mercer Mayer is a twist on a holiday classic. Little mouse is the smallest of his brothers and sisters. His mother constantly worries that he will get lost. She decides to make a drum for him out of an acorn.

The little mouse loves playing his drum. He plays it everywhere that he goes. But the town's creatures are tired of the noisy mouse.

Meanwhile, the town has just received word that the royal family who is to give birth to the new king of the world will be passing through their very forest. They quickly begin making preparations for the regal convoy.

When the town's creatures think they have been stood up by the royal family, they decide to celebrate anyway. But the little mouse soon discovers something that will change their lives forever.

I thought that this was a fun take on a Christmas classic. Mayer weaves the story of little mouse so beautifully. I also love the idea of animals celebrating the birth of the king.

The illustrations are absolutely stunning. With images that fill the page, children will be drawn to the festive, winter scenes. I also love how Mayer amplifies the world of animals.

The only disconnect that I found with this story was the fact that the humans could talk to the animals. I feel that this takes a lot of the magic and mystery out of the tale. When I was a child, I loved the idea of animals helping humans without their knowledge. To me, having the animals interact with the humans takes away a bit of the story's sparkle.

Overall, this is a fun read for children ages 3-6.

What a delightful surprise this book turned out to be. The charming story starts with the Little Drummer Mouse who is much much too little to join in any of his brothers and sisters playful games. His mother constantly worries about him because he is so small and makes him a drum out of an acorn. Now she is able to find him where ever he may be from the tap tap tap of his drum. He becomes known everywhere as The Little Drummer Mouse. Not every one likes to hear his tapping and constantly tell his to be quiet but on he beats his tiny drum.

One day a big meeting is called in the forest, announcing that the new king will be coming through their woods. All the animals decide to decorate the woods in anticipation of his coming. But nothing comes except a lot of snow and a poor man and his wife who is riding a donkey. All the animals are so disappointed. Drummer mouse is also disappointed and quietly one night sneaks out to the farmer's field to play on his drum. Suddenly, three very big men appear and ask for directions to the nearest stable. Mouse tells them where to go and decides to follow.

The ending is sweet and satisfying with mouse being able to play for the new king. But while the story is a good one, I found the best part of the book were the illustrations which are done is such detail that each page is a journey in itself. This is a wonderful book to be read to a child who is sitting on your lap or snuggled up next to you so that they may see each page up close. It's as interesting for an adult as it is for a child.
The book was in great condition, like new.
I was very satisfied. I would recommend to others.
The pictures are awesome. Thank you
