"The Church Mice At Christmas" written and illustrated by Graham Oakley. Published by Atheneum, third printing 1985.
"It was just before Christmas, and Arthur and Humphrey, leaders of the Church Mice decided there should be a Christmas party. This proved to be a very popular idea indeed. The only trouble was that there was no money, and the kinds of things that make a good Christmas party - candy - and puddings and cake and presents - have to be bought.
What to do? Raffling Sampson, the Church cat, proved disastrous; and carol singing for money turned out to be far too energetic and frightening. Besides, it didn't earn any money.
But Arthur and Humphrey were not to be put down, especially when they could always call upon the patient Sampson for help. The series of planned (somewhat) and unplanned (highly) events that led to a glorious Christmas makes a superbly funny addition to the chronicles of the intrepid vestry dwellers."
