This is a new and fun Christmas story of a family excited about Santa visiting their home on Christmas Eve. The children are excited about the snow that is falling on this night, and that is when Billy Mouse makes his appearance. Billy makes his residence in the family home, and just like everyone else, he wants to celebrate this Christmas holiday with the family, and he especially wants to have a Christmas stocking just as the children. But Billy is a mouse, and you know what happens when people see a mouse in the house. What will happen to Billy? Will the family accept him on this Christmas morning, or will they chase him away? You can find out in this new and exciting book “Billy Mouse’s Christmas Stocking” by author Cheryl Campbell.

I love children’s books and this is one of my new favorites. Cheryl Campbell is a new author for me, but I will be looking for her books in the future. I love the story of Billy Mouse and it will be a new Christmas classic in our home. The story is fun and exciting to read because the children are anticipating Santa Clause to come. The illustrations are awesome and fit the story so well. The vivid, yet soft colors give the story a homey feeling as you read it. The characters are sort of comic-like and so very adorable, and I really like the faces of the people and the mouse. I highly recommend this book for your reading enjoyment, and it will make an awesome read for children on Christmas Eve as everywhere they are waiting for Santa to arrive. And it will even give a whole new meaning to that mouse that may be in your house!
