Product Details


Writing with tenderness and humor, Wells creates an authentic, parallel, mouse-sized world within Boston while introducing readers to human-sized devotion and grief in the fully developed relationship between Jenny and Grandfather. Softly anthropomorphic black-and-white illustrations expressively convey the bond between a mouse and her inspiring grandfather. Poignant and sweet.
—Kirkus Reviews

Wells’ wistful ode to a family’s rich history is ultimately a celebration of memory, self-worth, love, and loss, while Denise’s inviting black-and-white illustrations add cozy details.

A heartwarming tale of love and loss, privilege and class, set in bustling Boston…Beautifully written text and endearing gray-scale illustrations transport readers and add to the poignancy of the tale.
—School Library Journal
