The Lovereading4Kids comment
This riches to rags to riches again story is utterly charming. Mr and Mrs Mice and their thirteen children live happily in a dolls’ house in a grand castle; apart from having one wall missing, their house is rather grand too, with plenty of room for them all. In Emily Sutton’s gorgeous illustrations their home is full of little details that will fascinate young readers; not since Beatrix Potter either, have mice looked so fine, and yet so very mouse-like, in smart hats and coats. The adventure unfolds perfectly over the length of the book as the mice lose their home, but happily regain it, and there’s a lovely rhythm to the story, told with such apparent ease and so much skill by Michael Bond. A treat! ~ Andrea Reece
