The Night Before Christmas by Tony Mitton and Layn Marlow (Orchard, £5.99)
This modern take on the classic poem sees a friendly family of mice full of excited anticipation as they prepare for Santa’s visit. The text, which is written in effortless rhyme, perfectly evokes the spirit of suspense of the original, as the playful mice children are too excited to sleep and wait up for Santa. But will they manage to spy the Big Fella himself? A charming feel-good read with animated illustrations.
