Description from Goodreads

Did you know that we humans are monitored by Mouseweb International, a worldwide network of mice working undercover to lend a paw whenever we need it most?

I gave this book four stars out of five

My thoughts:

This was such a fun book to read. It is pretty short, and obviously written for younger readers.

This would be a great book to read with the children. What children wouldn’t enjoy a story about intelligent, talking animals, spies, and a battle of wits between the good, kind-hearted mice and the mean, evil rats?

I really enjoyed the way that the mice had taken human technology and miniaturised it for mouse use, and how they had a secret intelligence organisation that worked in unison with a number of human agencies for the betterment of all.

There were many wonderful illustrations by Rosy Salaman, my favourite being the ones of the mice attending a fancy dress party.

I would recommend this book as something to read with younger children, and for older children in the six to nine year age range to read themselves. Frankly I think anyone, of any age, would enjoy it. I certainly did.

This review is based on a complimentary copy provided by Netgalley and the publisher.

When You Say My Name

There is a singular joy to be experienced when the right person says your name. I get that special shiver of pleasure up my spine, when the love of my life, Ionia, says my name.

When you say my name,
My heart it skips a beat,
It fills my soul with joy,
It makes me feel complete.

When you say my name,
It takes my breath away,
Makes me believe in god,
And like I ought to pray.

When you say my name,
Whether Julian or Jules,
I know for you I’d break,
All the senseless rules.

When you say my name,
In your special way,
I know I want to be,
Right there, with you to stay.

When you say my name,
And I tell you, ‘I love you’,
I look towards that perfect day,
When we both shall say ‘I do’
