After waking up in the middle of the night, Emily is amazed when she sees that her cats are singing holiday tunes, the snowman figure has come to life, and a group of mice are scrambling about baking holiday pies. Reprint.
Emily knows there's Christmas magic in the air when she slips out of bed and is greeted by a wild and enchanting scene: her pets are singing "Jingle Bells;" presents are flying around a spinning Christmas tree; mice are baking Christmas pies! And out the window, the snow-people Emily and her new neighbor built have come to life and are dancing together over the moonlit snow. Infused with warmth and mysterious action, Michael Garland's stunning illustrations and fanciful text are a joyful reminder of the true magic of Christmas.
