Mona has finally found a place to call home: the cozy Heartwood Hotel, where she works as a maid and sleeps cozily snuggled up to her best friend. Following the festive St. Slumber celebration, most of the guests have settled in to hibernate, and the staff is looking forward to a relaxing winter. But disruptions abound, from a difficult duchess to a mysterious midnight snacker. As the snow stacks higher and the food supplies shrink lower, Mona will have to gather friends both old and new to keep the peace, finding help along the way in some of the most unexpected places.

Like the first book, this sequel is also a splendid little novella for children. Fun characters in a curious setting offers great opportunities for little stories about anthropomorphized animals to meet and interact. Lots of great little lessons for kids without being preachy. As a kid in the '60s and early '70s, I enjoyed these kinds of stories. Whitefoot the Wood Mouse comes to mind. Thorton Burgess was a fine and prolific author in this genre. Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame is another. And, of course, Beatrix Potter. Kallie George seems to be fitting in with these authors quite nicely. On a side note, this children's book (like so many) would make a good starter book for ESL adults new to the English language.
