Overview

A young dormouse awakens from a deep sleep and utters a mysterious prophecy. In the centre of The Great Woods, an ancient tree receives some strange visitors. Rumours abound. Change is in the air. This is the age of... NOSTRADORMOUSE. An enchanting mythical journey for readers aged eight and upwards, Nostradormouse takes an anthropomorphic odyssey round two very different creation myths, one Celtic, one Nordic. Entwining the two is the origin of a mouse who eats the ninth nut of knowledge and becomes imbued with prophetic powers. Joining him on his epic journey to the centre of The Great Woods are an assortment of creatures, all of whom play an important role in the end of eternity. And, waiting for him at the centre, is an ancient tree which hasn't seen life for longer than living memory. This is the beginning of the legend; the tale of Nostradormouse.

This has beeen the favored bedtime story for my two young children. I read ahead as we were so close to the end and can say that this is a book I will treasure for years.

A wonderful legend in the vein of Wind in the Willows or the Redwall series, very well written and with appeal for all ages. Thanks for a great rainy day read, and i'll certainly be looking out for more adventures of Nostradormouse!

I read this to my 2 year old daughter over roughly a month's time as a bedtime story and found it a very good story. My daughter loved it. Even as a story that seemed aimed at children (not quite 2 yr olds, I suspect), it was quite a read.

Very imaginative story explaining how the seasons came to be. Would love to read the continuing adventures of Nostradormouse. Great read aloud, would suit many age groups. Would also make a great family movie!

It was a creative story, but i think it woud be good for age 12. Although it had somee interesting names I think it was a pretty good book.
