“The small hero’s brushes with danger and run-ins with royalty (both human and rodent) unfold with Peck’s characteristic wit and flair for adventure.” (Starred Review)
— Publishers Weekly
“[Children will] enjoy the twists and turns of this old-fashioned rags-to-riches story. It’s written in an easy, unlabored style but still reflects Peck’s relish for the perfect word and phrase; readers and listeners (it makes a great read-aloud) will savor every one.” — Horn Book
"A plucky hero, exciting plot, and a [satisfying] resolution, Peck's latest is a gentle homage to old-school adventure tales." (Starred Review) — School Library Journal
“Peck's writing is so rich, so laugh-out-loud funny, that the picture of the mysterious mousedom, complete with proper clothing, food, and life lessons reels us into a truly original, imaginative world. . . . A more-than-perfect book to share aloud with young readers.” — The Christian Science Monitor
"Peck creates a pleasantly detailed, cozy Victorian mouse world. There's some of Stuart Little's appeal to Mouse Minor's exploits." — BCCB
“Witty and precise prose… will enchant lovers of animal fantasy. This mouse-sized identity quest sparkles.”—Kirkus — Kirkus Reviews
“Perfect for reading aloud to intermediate grade students or for recommending to readers who enjoy a mystery or a good adventure story. Recommend to fans of The Tale of Despereaux.”—Library Media Connection — Library Media Connection

I am reading this book in school and I want to read ahead!!!!!! (I just got to ask my parents if I had enough money!!!!)
P.S. Please give me a quest FOR FROZEN MUSIC ONLY!!!!!
I bought this book along with some others one night, so I haven't read much of it yet. What I have read though is an ok story, but with the sample I read and the cover art I was expecting something much different than what it is. To me, it seems a bit slow paced, I just can't seem to separate who's speaking sometimes, and there still doesn't seem to be any real direction to the story. So ... I kept reading hoping it would get more interesting, but not so far. I wouldn't really recommend this book unless it was to someone who simply liked most any story about most any type of animal.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
