Product Details

Praise

“Rumer Godden has scaled her story perfectly and has written it in bright, lucid prose…it will give the reader suspense in miniature and [a] sense of comfort.” —The New York Times

“The story’s details are chosen with precision, and Godden gets the balance just right in her portrayal of her mouse characters: they act both like real mice (shredding the contents of the Mouse House to make a cozy nest) and people (two of Bonnie’s sisters make dolls out of silk flowers). Adams’s illustrations are old-fashioned but lively, perfect for this small-scope but very satisfying adventure.” —Martha V. Parravano, The Horn Book Magazine

“Rumer Godden has combined imagination and realism to produce a children’s book of charm and originality.” —Globe and Mail

“Tiny Bonnie, the littlest mouse in the family that lived in the cracked flower pot in the cellar of Mary’s house, crept upstairs to find a place to sleep one night. She found a real mouse house with tiny beds in the miniature house Mary was given for Easter. Bonnie slept in the miniature bed and tipped over chairs and tables when morning came and she couldn’t get out. After Bonnie’s visit, Mary relegated the little house to the basement, which provided a comfortable mouse haven.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Rumer Godden is magic.” —Palm Springs Desert Sun

“She has a wonderful way with fictional children, tender and true and never sentimental.” —Orville Prescott, The New York Times

“…an extraordinarily gifted writer who manages to infuse her novels with a special magic of their own.” —Boston Herald
