    Beautifully crafted story and book!

    My granddaughter and I read this book together. We opened the feathered pages to beautiful and captivating charcoal drawing to read the story of the Celeste. My granddaughter related to this little mouse with a clever, creative mind and a kind heart. She has picked up the book to read it again. A true test of a great story.

    A cute, fun book

    A Nest for Celeste is really more a book geared toward kids at the elementary school level, but the reason I'm reviewing it here is because I'm always encouraged when I see stories that mix mediums or continue to push the boundaries of how we define a story. Such is the case here with the blend of the narration with the splendid charcoal images. The two elements mixed together brings it somewhere between graphic novel, illustrated children's book, and standard novel. The illustrations and the placement of text augments the experience of the story, and thus the reader feels closer to the characters and the elements taking place throughout.

    Secondarily, there is some social commentary interspersed about the treatment of animals and nature and our responsibility to see to the preservation of life and the beauty around us. Cole takes special care to make reference to birds throughout the book that are now extinct, and were once plentiful throughout that region of the US not more than 100 years ago. I recommend this to readers looking for a fun, quick story about a cute little mouse who has some pretty amazing adventures.
