A Merry Little Christmas: Celebrate from A to Z

Do you know Mary Engelbreit?  Her illustrations are incredibly beautiful and I adore all her books!  She never disappoints and I would like to share with you the latest book I purchased from her! 
 
I discovered A Merry Little Christmas: Celebrate from A to Z thanks to Melissa who wrote about it on Julia's Bookbag and I bought it instantly because it was just too cute to resist! 
 
If you are a booklover, you should totally read her blog!  Melissa is also an accomplisehd photographer and a foodie who always shares her recipes! Thanks to her, I have discovered so many new books, fantastic toys and the prettiest tea cups !  She is a true inspiration for me!
 
The book cover alone would have convinced me to get this little gem!

Look at the tiny mice-elves!  They have pointed ears!

The verses are adorable!

I love this darling little mice family!
 


Mary Engelbreit has a knack for creating a charming and whimsical world where one would love to get lost. Here illustrations are never boring.  Each page is filled with vivid colors and meticulous details.  Each scene comes to life in the most adorable way. 

The characters she has created are all loveable and I wished she could write a book about their adventures!  It is a thin but inexpensive book that is totally worth owning!
 
I am so looking forward to this weekend to finish my Christmas village and to take some rest.  I am totally exhausted!  I wish you all a beautiful weekend!
