I think this is the best cheese Loka has ever made,” he told the reindeer. “She is so kind. She deserves better than Moodon. I mean, I know he’s nice--you know, in that elf way--but she should never have married him.” He sighed. “I’m not saying she should have married me. I mean, that would have been weird. A mouse and an elf probably wouldn’t have worked out. But Moodon? He’s such a mudfungle.” That night, when all his brothers and sisters were sound asleep, he quietly crept over to his snoring mum and stared at the mushroom she was hugging in her sleep.

A group of our children read and reviewed this title via The Reading Agency's Chatterbooks group. Here are their opinions. If you’ve read A Boy Called Christmas, The Girl Who Saved Christmas, Father Christmas and Me and / or The Truth Pixie, you’ll have some idea of the charm and adventures in this latest in Matt Haig’s Christmas series.An epic escapade, the story of a mouse named Miika who never knew his dad, and although he knew his mum, Ulla, was ’ very, very very tired’ with thirteen little mice to care for, she fell asleep before she could get around to naming him. He was always hungry, the weakest and the smallest, the last one born, and the one who went largely ignored by his Mum. So one early morning, when the other mice are sleeping, he decides to leave his home in the tree. He pauses before leaving, saying goodbye to everyone, including his Mum, but no one is listening.

Miika just wants to belong. Living with elves and trolls and pixies can make a mouse feel like the odd one out. But no one was listening. His words fell unnoticed, like snow thawing to rain before it hits the ground. And he stayed fast asleep all night until a scream pulled him out of happy dreams. “WHO STOLE THE MUSHROOM?” Ulla roared at her drowsy litter. Well, maybe not roared. When a mouse roars, it’s loud only if you happen to be another mouse. Anyone else would hear just the tiniest of tiny squeaks. I liked the drawings in the book, the houses and the elves. I will read it to my little sisters. AD For days and weeks after leaving the tree hole, he spent every night shivering from cold and fear, never finding enough mushrooms to eat, sleeping under soggy leaves and dreaming of having a full tummy.

Blitzen said nothing. Blitzen never said anything. Blitzen just lay there in the snow of the Reindeer Field, watching his reindeer friends chasing each other around in the air above and (possibly) wishing the mouse would leave him alone. And though Ulla named the other twelve offspring who arrived that night, she had fallen fast asleep by the time she got to Miika.
