After a dramatic escape from a mysterious laboratory, Isaiah is separated from his "mischief" (which is the word for a mouse family), and has to use his special skills to survive in the dangerous outdoors, and hopefully find his missing family. But in a world of cruel cats, hungry owls, and terrified people, it's hard for a young, lone mouse to make it alone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am definitely a fan of Patterson for all ages now! A fan of Patterson's adult mysteries, I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading this book to my 7 year old son but we both loved it! The adventures of Isaiah the mouse were humourous, understandable and we both found ourselves caring about his predicaments and everyday situations. We laughed, sympathized and celebrated throughout this book and loved the Isaiah quotes to lead off each chapter. Complete with fantastic illustrations, too!
