Anatole is a mouse who goes into the human world at night to find food for his family. One night he overhears what humans think about mice and decides he will help instead of being a freeloader. He goes to the cheese factory and rates their cheeses, leaving notes on how to improve them. The cheese factory increases its sales. Anatole remains anonymous. I enjoyed this story. It is fun. I like Anatole's solution and his comments on the cheese. I think the Disney movie, Ratatouille, is somewhat based on this book. The kids will enjoy it

Anatole is the story of a courageous little mouse with a special talent. His adventure leads to success through creative problem solving to help those he loves. It's a great message, and a fun story with beautiful illustrations done in 'old school' style with an unusual choice of three colors: bright pink, turquoise blue, and black. The story takes place in 1950s France and will interest anyone interested in France, daring mice, good cheese (seriously!), adventure, and doing things your own way. This book could lead to a lot of activities as Anatole uses his nose to rate various cheeses (precursor to Ratatouille) and leaves fabulous written tasting notes that had my 6 year old laughing out loud and wanting to do the same. This is a read-to book for the younger set as there are a lot of words, and the story is interesting and detailed enough to read multiple times. Charming and fun.

my 3 1/2 year old son loves it and i love the story (very ethical) myself though at first i had a hard time reading those french names and simple phrases.

I read this book to my daughter's 3rd Grade class. They were very amused by the story and the French names. Highly recommend!
