Frewyn Fables: The House Guest based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I love the fantasy world and stories the author has created and was eager to try this latest effort, a children's tale. It was so adorable and will have appeal for an adult audience too. The experiences of a little cutie mouse who has come of age and is on her own for the first time left a big smile on my face when I read to the end. This tale about a young Miss Sniffle mouse who is left on her own during the winter when her parents head to warmer climates and encounters an unusual guest just after a snow storm. The guest is at first unwelcome, but then in a surprise twist Miss Sniffle receives her reward for her patience with Baba Mole. The tale is told in just a few pages, but the storytelling is strong and plot is complete. The characters other than the heroine are quick sketches, but not skimped on. The heroine is cute and amusing as she encounters her neighbors and her visitors trying to act as a responsible young lady mouse and a good hostess. It was so engaging that I look forward to more stories of this nature from the author in the future. My thanks to Paper Crane books for the opportunity to read this story in exchange for my honest review.
