The Lovereading4Kids comment

A mouse-eye view of the world: Christopher Mouse describes the many adventures he’s had in his life. It’s simple fare, plainly told and delightfully mousey with it. Like most mice, Christopher has been owned by good and bad children all of whom he views philosophically. He’s had some dramatic escapes and an interesting spell in the museum. It makes fine reading and useful reflection on humans and mice alike.


Christopher Mouse by William Wise

Christopher Mouse is the charming, timeless tale of a white mouse who, in the course of being bought, sold and traded by good children, bad children and some in between, manages to escape through a museum and finally finds his way to a happy home. Along the way he becomes something of a poet, and as endearing an animal as any child could wish for.


'Narrated in first person (or mouse), William Wise's charming story is blessed with wonderful illustrations by Patrick Benson'
