About the Book

Mouse's fourth adventure is full of warm-hearted, snowy fun.

Snow! Cookies! Candy! Mouse loves snow days. When he's accidentally swept out the door and into the snow, Mouse has a blast ice skating, sledding, and building snow animals—always just one step ahead of sly Cat. But above Mouse on a wire sit three cold birds who warn Mouse of Cat's approach. Now it is Mouse's turn to do something nice for his new friends.

Judy Cox is also the author of One Is a Feast for Mouse, Cinco de Mouse-O!, and Haunted House, Haunted Mouse, Mouse's previous adventures. In a starred review, Kirkus Reviews said of Cinco de Mouse-O!, "Children, parents, teachers and librarians will want to follow [Mouse] from one celebration to the next." Judy Cox lives in Oregon.

Jeffrey Ebbeler has been illustrating books and magazines for ten years. His art for One Is a Feast for Mouse was called "colorful" and "dramatic" by Booklist. He lives in Cincinnati, Ohio.

"Ebbeler's generously detailed acrylics brim with comedic details . . . and offer surprises on every page."—Publishers Weekly

"Mouse himself is a delight . . . While this book will be enjoyed in more northern states, it will be just as much fun to pull it out in the desert heat."—School Library Journal
