Carlo The Mouse On Vacation by Mrs. D

A funny story, full of the adventures and troubles of Carlo the mouse, who lives a simple life in a Florida hospital but always dreams of greater things. In this vibrant picture book, a daring mouse takes center stage in an adventure even bigger than his appetite. Carlo has never been outside the four walls of his home and he has one unfulfilled wish-a vacation. In a twist of fate, he unexpectedly finds himself embarking on his adventures and misadventures by accidentally landing inside an open car trunk, catching the wrong bus, and boarding an airplane that takes him halfway around the world to Paris. The shrewd Carlo finds a way to survive the most unusual situations while dodging-or causing-mayhem along the way, touching readers' hearts and making them laugh.

Creative and amusing story!  Carlo the Mouse on Vacation is a beautifully illustrated comical book, which I happened to find in one of my local stores. I presented this book to my friend’s sons. While reading this imaginative story, the boys really had a great time following Carlo’s unusual adventures. The illustrations were colorful and entertaining and described this imaginative story. As we were reading they created a game, trying to predict what would happen to Carlo next.  Carlo’s adventures kept children’s attention to the last page. When we got to the end of the book, they were curious about what will happen to Carlo when the man in black opens a pizza box, where Carlo was hiding and will Mrs. D. continue Carlo’s adventure.  I must admit as a grownup, I had a great time reading this cool book.  A funny mouse from Florida made me laugh to tears. Mrs. D. created a cute character that is constantly getting in trouble. I will recommend this book for slightly older children, who like adventures and creative stories. Great and fun read!

I bought this book for my nieces and nephews. While reading this book together we had fun and the most quality time we have had in a while. The book was very funny, entertaining and engaging, as well as easy to read. The children easily relate to the main character CARLO, who grabbed their attention from the beginning and held it to the end of the book and had great illustrations bursting with color. As an adult I had as much fun as the children had. The book was also educational teaching children of self acceptance I would recommend this book for children as well as adults to read to their kids. I can¿t wait until the next book comes out.

Fun! Fun and more fun! Give your love to our new pal Carlo the mouse! Every year I take my family to visit the author’s day in Smithville, where the local authors display their books. Great event! I was glad to meet Mrs. D and with pleasure purchased her colorful books. Reading Carlo the Mouse on Vacation, my family had great time. We like how Carlo appeared in Mrs. D’s story. Upbeat, cool and carefree, the adventurous mouse reminded me of human being or better yet ... myself when I was much younger. I always had passion for food and for adventure. Carlo’s attitude is unbelievable! I closely related to the daring mouse. What a fun character! I hope someday Carlo the mouse will sneak on TV. He would make a great cartoon. Mark my word – it will be a great entertainment! This book is absolutely enjoyable! I am dying to find out what will happen to Carlo the mouse in Mrs. D’s next book. Come on Mrs. D – give us a clue! When is the next book is coming out? We need more of Carlo’s adventures! I hope Carlo will take on the Parisian mice and visit the most popular eateries. Hey Mr. D, I have an idea! You should have a contest where Carlo goes next! Let us have fun with international mice! Mrs. D finished her book with very intriguing line. One word – spies…I can’t give away the rest, you must read it for yourself. Thank you Mrs. D. for taking us on fun trip and introducing us to hilarious adventures of the Florida mouse! Well done!

An unexpected vacation turns into an unusual adventure where Carlo the Mouse discovers many things about himself and the world of being famous. Carlo the Mouse from Florida has always dreamed about taking a vacation. Unexpectedly, he lands in a car trunk and travels to New Jersey where he is kicked out without dinner from Mrs. D's kitchen. Hungry, he begins to look for other places to eat. This is when his adventures begin! Join Carlo as he swims in a lake and loses his clothes. The zany Rooster Ross gives him feathers to make new pants. As he travels, he manages to board the wrong bus and falls in a lady's handbag. The bus takes him to an airport and the adventurous mouse lands on an airplane flying to France. Soon, Carlo finds himself in Paris, living life as a famous star and doing business with famous mice from around the world. Through his travels, mishaps, and adventures Carlo concludes that having everything does not always make one happy. After experiencing fame for one day, he realizes that walking in someone else's shoes is not as easy as it looks on TV. Each new adventure teaches Carlo something more about himself and the world. He learns about politics, fame, decision-making, and much more. Carlo discovers being true to one's self is the key to happiness, once and for all. This story is written with a touch of unusual humor, is easy to read, and to follow the main character. The book is a great read to share with children of any age.I also think much younger readers will enjoy the sweet illustrations of this adorable mouse, who happens to enjoy good food. My suggestion is for you to follow adventurous Carlo the Mouse! This is a beautifully illustrated and entertaining book, with a unique storyline. I highly recommend it!

An amazing journey into the wonderful world of kind, happy and cheerful characters! Finally our dream came true and Carlo the Mouse arrived to Moscow! Last night, the deliveryman knocked on our door and delivered Carlo the Mouse on Vacation, a children’s book written by Mrs.D, which we ordered on Amazon. With excitement, I read this book in one sitting on the same night. I was delighted to meet Carlo the mouse, Mr.& Mrs. D and their charming Nyda the cat, who ate all fish from neighbor's pond. Impressed with amusing characters, I read it to the end and could hardly wait to share this book with my son in the morning. Next day, reading this book to Serozha, we laughed at Carlo’s unexpected adventures, especially when the careless mouse lost his clothes by the lake and borrowed a few feathers form Rooster Ross to make his pants. Dear Mrs. D! You said that Carlo the Mouse on Vacation is a story for children and parents. Indeed it is! Reading it, we had a great time. It was an amazing journey into the magical world of sweet, joyful and positive characters! Every moment we spent with the adventurous mouse was new experience and fun. The funny mouse took us on an amazing trip and entertained us with his funny adventures and misadventures. He made us laugh through the last page. This book has potential to become one of our favorite books! My son said, "This is a real funny book, Mom! Please tell Mrs. D big thanks from me." Now, we are looking forward to reading all books on Carlo the Mouse and your new books, which we already ordered on Amazon! We love Carlo the Mouse and you, Mrs.D! Please excuse my English! I hope you understand. Please accept our warm wishes and best thanks for your great art!

The adorable mouse, laughing from the front page of a brightly illustrated children’s book, caught my attention as soon as I spotted it on a shelf in one of the old bookstores located in Smithville Village. Briefly looking through the book, the amusing illustrations surprised me with cute characters and vivid colors, bursting from every page. I must admit that I am not a kid, but I still love children’s books and if I have an opportunity to find a new children’s book, I will read it immediately. Curious, I hid in the corner and started reading the first chapter. At first, the story took me by surprise. Written in a comic style, the curious mouse took me on an unexpected journey from New Jersey to Paris. This book was more than a story about food-loving mouse and an unexpected vacation. I quickly realized that on the journey of Florida mouse, a friendly, peaceful and carefree character Mrs. D. created, she wanted to show children that life is not always glorious. In reality, we all have responsibilities and have to work hard. The book is full of whimsical characters and the adventures of the inquisitive mouse made me laugh to the last page. This book allows children to travel in their imaginations and builds eagerness to see new things. It reminds them that there is a huge world waiting to surprise them with new discoveries and adventures. The book promotes individuality and although it is sometimes hard to be yourself, it is always the best policy. The story has some tricky twists and unusual scenes, but overall it is a great read for all ages. I can proudly say Carlo the Mouse on Vacation joined my bookshelf and looking at the happy Carlo, I am reminded that I am perfectly happy with who I am. Travel with Carlo the mouse and discover your journey!

I purchased Carlo The Mouse on Vacation at one of the events Mrs D. had in our area. For many years, I worked in the library system and book stores I and have a great appreciation for children's books.   Carlo the Mouse on Vacation was written in a humorous style and was a joy to read. The story was lighthearted and very endearing and reminded me of the the fun books I read from my childhood. The illustrations are so graphic and vivid that they make the story come alive.     I fell in love with adventurous personality of the shrewd mouse as if he was the funny fellow who lived next door when I was growing up. The story was so entertaining that it was as if I took the journey with the adorable whimsical mouse, who dreamed to travel around the world. I enjoyed his humorous take on each culture.   Take a Trip with Carlo!
