This stunning picture book is now available in a new large-format special edition!

One winter night, out of their nest, ten little grey mice climb onto the ice. One by one they run back to the house scared off by a new animal that comes by until the last one finds itself far down the ice and has to hurry back, past each of the ten animals. Hurry, hurry! Scurry scurry! Safe in the house, sneaked the small mouse, one winter night, under the moonlight. The original edition of One Winter Night (Simply Read Books, 2007) earned an Honorable Mention at the Alcuin Society Awards for Excellence in Book Design.
