Word of Mouse by Chris Grabenstein, James Patterson, Illustrated by Joe Sutphin, reviewed by Chitra Soundar

I normally don’t review books by super-star author or celebrities. They already get enough reviews, publicity and media attention. But after I read this book Word of Mouse, I had to shout about it.




If you have read The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo or Stuart Little by E.B.White, then you’ll love Word of Mouse. 

This is a book full of personality, cheeky proverbs, daredevil adventures and the story of love, friendship and families. Right from the get-go I was enthralled by both the plot and how it unfolds and the emotional rollercoaster it sets the reader on.

Although the ending is inevitable and we know the main character is going to win, the authors don’t let the reader sit back and relax. Full of funny references, underlying sub-plots of children who need to cope with school, mice that are different and unique, this story is not just for children.

The illustrations are absolutely perfect and add to the comedy and the drama in the story. Here is a link to some wonderful illustrations from the book at the illustrator's website. 

I’m guessing James Patterson has enough clout to make this into a movie, surely from Pixar. But until then, I will read and re-read this book as many times my library will let me borrow it.

Here is a list of books with Mouse as the protagonist.

I have never seen a miracle like this in my entire life.
My husband left me and my 5 year old boy for over 9 months,
I was so traumatized and frustrated, because of the love I have for my husband I seeked for help from different places to bring him back to me but there was no difference. Until my mother introduced me to ( DR DAWN) this doctor promised me that my husband will come back to me in 48 hours after I explained everything to him, and to my greatest surprise my husband called me after 48 hours and was begging me to forgive him that he will never leave me again, all thanks to Dr DAWN because for over 3 year's now I have been happy with my husband and he treats me like a queen,
Contact DR DAWN, if you have any kind of problem.
