This was a very cute children's story. There's action, adventure, romance and comedy all wrapped up into one. Read it, it's a short easy read and you WILL enjoy it. I promise. It's super super cute!

The downside? The author talks to you. I find that highly annoying - the "Dear Reader" parts. Oh, just shut up and tell the story, Ms. Author Lady.

Winner of the Newberry Medal, this is a stirring fantasy from the author of books such as Because of Winn-Dixie. The hero is a mouse and his adventures.
