A warm and cozy Christmas adventure!

Now for our third book of Christmas, The Christmas Adventure, written by Stephen James Moore.

Murgatroyd, a member of the elite M.I.N.U.T.E. (Mice International Network Unit Team Elite) tactical team, and his young cousin, Archimedes, set off on a Christmas Eve raid on the refrigerator. This annual yuletide caper had been meticulously planned earlier by senior mice, but, as the poet Robbie Burns once said, “The best laid schemes of mice and men often go awry.”

Following the plan to the letter, Archimedes and Murgatroyd discover only fridge tracks. Horror of horrors: it’s been stolen! Join our intrepid adventurers on their quest to find the missing appliance and steal it back.

Through it all, one little mouse will need to stand tall to save Christmas—with a little help from Santa, of course.

When the Queen of the Underworld discovers the dark deceit unfolding at the North Pole, she puts Santa on her own naughty list—not a good place to be! Unleashing her battalions of demons for a Krampusnacht no one will ever forget, she rejoins a war that stretches back thousands of years.

Featuring Tellwell author Mike Ellis’s Guided Teachings from Spirit . . .

A spirit guide.
Love is the answer.
Love is the be-all.
Don’t be afraid.
I am here to help you.
These are a few of the words I had written down the morning after a trusted medium told me to buy a notebook and write down the very first thing that came to me. Okay, but these didn’t sound like things I would say. Was it really my spirit guide? I had doubts, and those doubts would stay with me over the next several months as I continued this daily ritual.
Eventually, I accepted the fact that this was spirit communication. This was a guide, and there would be two more to follow in the coming years. This has now become a daily routine after my morning meditation: sitting and writing what comes through me. It is indeed a deep communication with a close friend and confidant.
In the course of all of this, there would be so much more. How I improved and strengthened my mediumship abilities, how the Universe opened to me in so many ways, and how my personal life changed for the better. Do you think this is something you would be interested in trying? If I can do it, so can you. Follow my progress from my initial misgivings to my introduction to a whole new world.
My first book, Guided Messages from the Other Side, narrated my introduction to mediumship and metaphysics, which spiritually altered the way I continue with my life. This, my second offering, chronicles my further explorations into amazing dimensions and realms, all supported by loving guidance from those on the other side.
