Fiction. Children's Literature. Illustrated by Andrea Torrey Balsara. JELLYBEAN MOUSE is the second tale in the exciting picture book series, "Happy the Pocket Mouse." When a boring trip to the laundromat frustrates Happy's insatiable appetite for adventure, Happy arrives at the laundromat in a funk, only to come face-to-face with his first jellybean machine. Thrilled with the discovery, Happy is confounded for a second time when John explains that he has only enough quarters for the wash. Refusing to give up, Happy makes a careful reconnaissance beneath the washing machines until he finds a quarter of his own. But the stingy machine conspires against the treasure-seeking mouse, steals his quarter, and refuses to release its jellybeans. Unwilling to accept defeat, Happy convinces John to tilt the machine until its sweet treasure spills out in abundance. No adventure is too small for a mouse with a prodigious appetite.

About the Author
Philip Francis Roy was born and raised in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. He grew up beside the ocean, and it now features in many of the stories he writes. His university studies included music and history, but he also knew from an early age that he wanted to write novels. SUBMARINE OUTLAW, his first published novel in a six- book (and counting!) adventure series, was the result of a lifelong fascination with submarines and a secret desire to build one. "If teens enjoy reading SUBMARINE OUTLAW and its sequels half as much as I have enjoyed writing them," says Philip, "I will feel very rewarded indeed." Philip is also the author of two children's/YA historical novels, Blood Brothers in Louisbourg and Me & Mr. Bell. He has also recently published MOUSE TALES and JELLYBEAN MOUSE, his first two children's picture books in the Happy the Pocket Mouse series.
