“Kennedy’s adorable mouse characters complement Dixon’s gracefully written story, which subtly makes the point that peeking at presents doesn’t pay off.”  — Kirkus Reviews

“Kennedy’s mouse house and family are cozy and full of energy, her watercolors capturing the excitement and wonder of the holiday…A sweet but purposeful storytime filler.”  — School Library Journal

“Children will ache with Posey over her misdeed and understand her motivation, while considering the story. A nice little lesson, told with charm and love by a Grandma Mouse who truly remembers what it is like to be young and eager to find out what is inside a wrapped present. Endearing drawings show the reader the inside of the mousehole, nestled in the roots of a large snow covered tree.”  —  Children’s Literature

“Kennedy’s light-filled watercolor and ink illustrations show human-size objects humorously converted for mouse use.”  — The Horn Book Guide
