Marvelous Middle Grade Monday
Fans of Runt the Brave series by Dan Schwabauer and the Redwall books by Brian Jaques will like Mouseheart (Margaret K. McElderry Books, 2014) by Lisa Fiedler.
Hopper is a mouse in a pet store. He wishes he was braver. But his bravery is about to be tested. Can he save his siblings? Can he survive when he gets washed from the uplands? And how can he tell who is telling the truth in this new world where he finds himself?
I was satisfied with the ending of this first book in the trilogy, but want to know more about Hopper and his the world. Fortunately the other books are already out. Book two is Hopper's Destiny and book three is The Return of the Forgotten.
The author has a lovely website that even has games.
Beautiful illustrations are done by Vivienne To--see more of her work here.
