A French mouse decides to earn an honest living by tasting the cheese in a cheese factory and leaving notes about its quality.

Anatole is the story of a courageous little mouse with a special talent. His adventure leads to success through creative problem solving to help those he loves. It's a great message, and a fun story with beautiful illustrations done in 'old school' style with an unusual choice of three colors: bright pink, turquoise blue, and black. The story takes place in 1950s France and will interest anyone interested in France, daring mice, good cheese (seriously!), adventure, and doing things your own way. This book could lead to a lot of activities as Anatole uses his nose to rate various cheeses (precursor to Ratatouille) and leaves fabulous written tasting notes that had my 6 year old laughing out loud and wanting to do the same. This is a read-to book for the younger set as there are a lot of words, and the story is interesting and detailed enough to read multiple times. Charming and fun.Was this review helpful?
