About this item

This mouse doesn't want to stay in the house . . . even if it's cold outside!
For most field mice, winter means burrowing down and snuggling in. But not for Lucy! She loves snow crunching under her paws and wearing a fluffy wool hat. And most of all, Lucy loves to skate, and she's just ACHING to show off her new skill with her friends. After all, a winter wonderland is twice as nice when you have friends to enjoy it with. But the other mice just don't understand - and after a disastrous indoor snowball fight, it looks as if they never will. Can Lucy find a way to make the other mice come out and "mice skate" too?
With intricately detailed illustrations as cozy as a fireplace in December (and a cup of cocoa, too) , this funny punny warmhearted love song to winter - and to one brave, bold, and generous mouse - will have kids bundling up for some cold-weather fun of their own.
