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 learned 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.
