    A charming story

    This is a great bedtime story! Or if your kids like to read about animal adventures. This tells about a clever little mouse who is travelling to a new home and faces some difficulties and also surprises on her way there.

    I liked the drawings (black and white) of mice and owls. They make the book interesting for the younger kids to follow, too.

    I would recommend this book for grades 2-5 (depending on the reading level of your child). It is not too scary.
    It is teaching good values and how good friends can help you through the hard times in life. It also shows that if you do good to others they will reward you.

    A timeless story

    The story is unique, although may be a bit on the scary side for some younger readers, as the entire premise is about how one mouse has to leave home and look for a new place to live facing all kinds of challenges on the way to the new home.
    However, the story's lesson is that if you have a kind heart and courage to go after your dreams then you will succeed! Trust your friends and help others whenever you can!

    I really liked this story and the detailed illustrations made the story even more interesting for kids! They just loved the way the little mouse was peaking to see from the branch where the fire is!!! :O)

    Do you think this would be a good book for an 8 year old?
