This mouse doesn't want to stay in the house . . . even if it's cold outside For most field mice, winter means burrowing down and snuggling in. But not for Lucy She loves snow crunching under her paws and wearing a fluffy wool hat. And most of all, Lucy loves to skate, and she's just ACHING to show off her new skill with her friends. After all, a winter wonderland is twice as nice when you have friends to enjoy it with. But the other mice just don't understand--and after a disastrous indoor snowball fight, it looks as if they never will. Can Lucy find a way to make the other mice come out and "mice skate" too? With intricately detailed illustrations as cozy as a fireplace in December (and a cup of cocoa, too), this funny punny warmhearted love song to winter--and to one brave, bold, and generous mouse--will have kids bundling up for some cold-weather fun of their own.

Enter it into the box below the words Enter Your Gift Card Number:
That's it! You will have to add a credit card as a backup in case your gift card doesn't cover the full amount of your purchase. **Because the website doesn't 'know' what amount is on your store gift card — the website and store system are separate entities — you will not see your gift card applied until your order leaves its Pending status and is Processing or Completed.**
If you received an Online Gift Code (NOT a physical card, but a string of numbers and letters emailed to you), please refer to your emailed gift to redeem those! They are applied instantly when you visit the website via the gift code email.
