After a traumatic bauble-related incident when he was a baby, Mouse has decided that getting in the festive spirit is far too dangerous - from sharp pine needles on the Christmas tree, to paper cuts from wrapping paper, to sneeze-inducing clouds of icing sugar for decorating the gingerbreadbiscuits. How will the other animals in Jingle Bell Forest persuade him to loosen up? Find out in this warm and comical Christmas tale! The festive spirit triumphs over petty rules and box-ticking in this funny and feel-good story. Children will love the sheer silliness of the humour while parentswill laugh at its satirical dig at the health-and-safety obsessions of modern life. But ultimately there's a warm and engaging message: like Scrooge or the Grinch, Mouse is an anti-hero saved by the power of Christmas!
Samara has recently graduated from Falmouth University. In addition to her illustration, she works as a designer for a leading British retailer. This is her first picture book.
