a creature was stirring...

Not a mouse, however, but a curious little boy too excited to sleep on Christmas Eve in this adorable new book by Carter Goodrich. In A Creature was Stirring, Goodrich spins the old classic on its head a bit by playing both sides of the rhyme. Our narrator knows full well the potential ramifications of peeking on Santa but curiosity wins out--as it would with any little boy worth his salt!! Goodrich is an acclaimed illustrator (The New Yorker and Pixar for example) and this book is just as beautiful as you would expect. -Rhiannon
