What It Is
This new holiday picture book captures the true spirit of giving. A king buys a bolt of beautiful red cloth and has a Christmas dress made for his daughter. When the royal dressmakers finish their work, they put the scraps outside the back door for the taking. The kitchen maid takes the scraps and makes a gift for her mother. In turn, she puts her red scraps out for someone else to use. And so on goes the chain of gift-making until the tiniest creature — a mouse — has a warm and cozy gift on Christmas morning.
