ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
I’m rarely reading childrens books but when I do, I know I’m usually in for a good treat. And this story is simply wonderful. I feel in love with the main character and her friends and family. I especially loved her grandmother. Mouse is so brave, fearless, compassionate and has so much courage, I really enjoyed her character. She has big dreams and even bigger steps to fill in. I’m not going to go into the plot, since no matter what I say, I would for sure be giving away some of the mystery and joy of discovering this book’s potential. All I can say is that it’s a pleasure to read and you won’t regret doing it.
