Story Snug Advent: J is for Jingle Bells

J is for Jingle Bells by Nick Butterworth

Jingle Bells is a beautiful little hardback with a sturdy, sparkly cover, it’s the perfect size for a Christmas stocking. The two little mice in the story are very clever although the solution to their problem doesn’t amuse Cat! Our very special copy of Jingle Bells has been signed by author / illustrator Nick Butterworth.

Jingle Bells - Story SnugThe Story: Two little mice, Lottie and Jack, are having trouble with the farm cat. He eats their Christmas food and then tells Father Christmas that the mice are away so Father Christmas doesn’t fill their stockings. Lottie and Jack decide that enough is enough and with the help of their friend Ton-Chee, the rat, they come up with a plan to make sure that they always know where Cat is!
