Starbucks is one of the most popular brands in the market for coffee. Hmm...coffee is just not coffee. A lot can happen over coffee and a lot can happen because of coffee ( all that energy I get after I grab a cup at Starbucks!). The common denominator of all that happens over a cuppa' coffee is sharing. That's why Starbucks has introduced one of the hottest gift for this season and all kids are going love this and grow up to be great fans of Starbucks! Huxley may have nothing to do with coffee, but the Huxley mug does :)
Starbucks generously sent me the Huxley Plush Toy, Huxley Mug and a heart-warming story book -The Mouse Writer. I am honored to introduce to you the star of the gift - Huxley! You maybe wondering who Huxley is?
Huxley is an adorable, sweet and soft little mouse who has been bestowed with a special gift of writing stories with his tail. The author of the book, Ethan Johnson has beautifully written the story of Huxley who in his organized life made it a point to write stories with his tail.
Life was hard for Huxley when Tubbs the cat was around. Huxley finally grabs the attention of the family and becomes a beloved member of the family. The events that lead to it were quite eventful for Huxley, but it was all worth it! I will leave it to you to find out more! It is not just a book for kids as adults could learn a thing or two from Huxley about being organized and recording events or keeping to-do lists?
I honestly couldn't put the book down once I started and had to read it to know the happy, sweet ending. So snuggle up on your couch this Christmas, with this book and a cup hot chocolate and enjoy!
Don't forget to read an interview with the author, Ethan Johnson, here!
My son has fallen in love with Huxley and it has become his dear companion. It is small and cuddly to be carried around. Huxley received a warm welcome in my home with a sweet kiss from son ( and I kissed it too when nobody was looking! Was too cute!).
Everything and anything, Huxley is cute! This Huxley mug is my son's mug now and it has little Huxley perched on top of the handle and totally adorable!
The Huxley Writer Mug, Huxley Mouse Plush and Cocoa Trio are not available for purchase online but are still available in Starbucks company-operated locations in the U.S. and Canada while supplies last. The Huxley Mouse Writer Book is only available in Starbucks stores in the U.S..
