Former Elementary Teacher,
KH Meyers takes a lifetime of experiences with young people into this fascinating book, sharing his thoughts in a delightfully poetic story that is illustrated wonderfully. Your children and grandchildren are in for a treat.
Theo the Mouse is a Christmas story to be shared with the little ones you love, preferably with hot chocolate and cookies. Theo is a loving papa mouse who wants to provide treats and gifts for his family, but it’s Christmas Eve with not a cookie or a present in sight.
Patterned after the much-beloved “A Visit From St. Nicholas”, this sweet and charmingly-illustrated tale will be the start of a conversation about the true meaning of Christmas.
As a retired elementary school librarian and lifelong reader, I have quite an extensive collection of books. Every year, I add at least one new Christmas picture book to my collection. This year it will be Theo the Mouse.

Theo the Mouse. A Christmas Story is a book destined to become a cherished family Christmas story in homes and schools. Be sure to have a cup of hot chocolate and cookies as you read and re-read this timeless tale about Theo and his beloved family.

In a brilliantly crafted twist to a classic story, KH Meyers, forgoes the usual route of the sequel and instead offers a uniquely moving, behind-the-scenes
adventure, happening simultaneously. Theo the Mouse: A Christmas Story, follows Theo, a caring every-mouse with a Christmas conundrum, to a
heartfelt conclusion. Made better by the vibrant illustrations of Bekah Grace, this flowing tale is certain to take its place among the annual Christmastime stories.
Published author and poet
KH Meyers has done a remarkable job of capturing the spirit of Christmas in Theo the Mouse: A Christmas Story. Theo’s thwarted plan to save Christmas for his family is overshadowed by the unexpected results of his adventure and leaves you with a warm feeling that cookies and hot cocoa bring! It is a book that will definitely be added to our grandchildren’s library. This could be the “feel good” children’s book of the year!
Former Elementary Principal,
Theo the Mouse, A Christmas Story
"I wanna read 'Theo' first!" My very adamant toddler climbs into my lap beside his twin brother and together wait to relive the story of Theo The Mouse one more time. My little children are already in love with the story and Theo's brave adventure to bring Christmas cheer to his mousey family. This book is going to be a family favorite for years to come!
KH Meyers poetically tells a story behind a story. The first two lines of the beloved poem "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" by Clement Moore have never been considered through the eyes of a little mouse who was indeed stirring! With beautiful illustrations (artfully depicted by Bekah Grace) and a riveting tale, Theo the Mouse is a delight for all ages. Theo begins his journey desiring to collect treats for his family to celebrate Christmas. By the end of the story, Theo is reminded that the true value of Christmas lies in the warm hugs and sweet love of his family. Indeed, a heartwarming tale that our family will read again and again (and again).
