On the first day in December, Marigold Mouse receives a surprise gift. She can’t wait to share her excitement with her best friend Marvin. A Christmas tree arrives for Marigold but Marvin has no Christmas decorations in his house. They decide to share their decorations and together create a wonderful festive home.
In the second picture book in the Marvin and Marigold series, Mark Carthew’s evocative verse expresses the spirit of the festive season, and Simon Prescott’s illustrations bring to life the magic of Christmas.
