Ben is a wealthy mouse who is not interested in Christmas, or the gift that Tim, a poor mouse, brings him on Christmas Eve. That night, Ben cannot sleep and a stranger appears who takes him on a quest to find three people who agree with Ben that a candied plum is the best thing in the world. By morning, Ben, like Scrooge, has learnt the true meaning of Christmas and the value of friendship and he invites Tim to celebrate Christmas with him. Toby Forward's atmospheric tale is perfectly matched by Ruth Brown's gorgeous illustrations, to make this a classic Christmas gift book.
