Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
This adorable children's book recounts the eventful saga of a Minn, a white-footed mouse who, after being snatched from her Northwoods cabin, encounters nearly innumerable perils and adventures.
Children's Literature - Jennie DeGenaro
Not only does this book leave the reader with a cliffhanger at the end of every chapter, but information about Minnesota is built in as Minn tries to get back home to her beloved Gerdie. She is a mother figure to Minn, a little white-footed mouse. Gerdie is a kindhearted woman from Sweden who befriends all animals in need of help, inviting them into her cabin until well again. An involved dangerous journey puts Minn in danger. Many animals are kind to Minn, but others are not. The animals speak, making it easy for them to understand Gerdie and Minn. The animals, drawn in black-and- white sketches, are seen throughout the book. One illustration shows Gerdie putting Minn lovingly to bed in a bureau drawer. These are the experiences that Minn remembers as she tries to return home. Time goes by and Minn tries desperately to return to Gerda in her little cabin. Finally Minn makes her way back to Gerda; however the cabin is empty and Minn is brokenhearted. Minn leaves again in search of Gerda. There will be a follow-up book to let the reader know what happens.
