Susanna Hill is hosting yet another holiday kid lit writing contest, and this time the theme is...
a holiday contest!
Below is an excerpt from my entry, and a little illustration I made to go with it. Make sure to check out Susanna's blog to read the others!

Deep underground, Mole awoke to the tell-tale sounds of winter’s arrival:
the scrape of skates carving the frozen pond overhead.
The Solstice Mice Skating Competition.
Other years, Mole had dug deeper, away from the cute and graceful forest creatures.
I’m not one of them.
But tonight, Mole found himself tunneling closer.
They can’t stop me from listening in.
