Originally published in 1958 by Harper & Row, Something for Christmas is the story of a little mouse’s search for a very special gift for a very special person. Small and sweet and a perfect stocking stuffer for you or some wee one you love. The New York Review Children's Collection sent me this impeccable reprint, and really no other publisher does more to bring forgotten classics back into the fold. The editors there are miracle workers finessing literary Lazaruses back from the dead on a daily basis. I have so much respect for what they do.

This book was sent to me by the publisher to giveaway, but I don't think I need to tell you that this in no way educated my opinion of the publisher or the title in question. I've been bragging on these guys since the beginning of time!
Good luck everyone!
