Synopsis

"Look, my dear, we have our very own Christmas tree," said Mr. Mouse. "And, the very biggest!" said Mrs. Mouse. Hundreds of people looked back up at the tree, while the mice watched the skaters below. They were country mice. The tree was their home. Now they found themselves in the heart of New York City, Rockefeller Center. When Mr. And Mrs. Mouse's tree is chosen to be the very special Rockefeller Center Christmas tree, the two little country mice find themselves in the bustling world of great big New York City. There they experience all of the wonder of their lively new home, go ice-skating at Rockefeller Center, window-shopping at FAO Schwarz, eat pretzels and chestnuts, hitch a ride on a horse-drawn carriage in Central Park-- they do it all! And then they receive the most precious gift of all--a family.
