‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring not even a mouse." But wait! A mouse is stirring because Santa missed his house last year. Before you can say "Merry Christmas!", we're off on the wild adventures of a mouse, an elf, and a spunky little girl who just won't take no for an answer.
