Rated 5 out of 5 by from loved it! Just finished this novel on the weekend and I love everything about it, from the retro book cover and red satin ribbon to how is so neatly tucks into my hands. This book is brand new but if feels like a classic. The Stowaways are an adventurous mouse family and I love how everything is familiar but in miniature. Ie, a button becomes the wheel of a bike, a thimble is a pail. I loaned this to a friend who has boys aged 3 and 5. Although this novel is for older kids I can see that it would appeal to all ages because it is a fantasy based on a known world. Even her 3 year old will "get" a mouse using common our household objects in unexpected ways. This novel is a page-turner and a keeper.
