Summary
In this variation on the folk song, "The Twelve Days of Christmas," two mice enjoy such Christmas gifts as "nine nuts for nibbling" and "four holly berries." When Hilary Knight discovered mice in his studio, he set about designing them a special outdoor home. The mice had unique talents of their own. Maude, an expert needle-mouse, complemented Max's way with a hammer. Both shared a keen eye for found objects. Mr. Knight's watercolor journal of this charming couple's enterprise, accompanied by Maude's daily notations, has become a joyous celebration of the Twelve Days of Christmas
