Synopsis

Library Mouse A Friend's Tale by Daniel Kirk

Sam the library mouse is back! In this new book, Sam makes friends with a student working on a book-making project in the library. The student writes a story of his own that Sam illustrates. A wonderful tale about the power of stories and creativity. Celebrated writer and illustrator Daniel Kirk brings to life the joys of reading, writing, and sharing in this all-new Library Mouse adventure. Sam the Library Mouse loves to write, and the children love his little books, which he leaves on the library shelves for them to find. But no one at the library has ever met him. When Tom can't find a partner for a book-making assignment and finds Sam's secret hole behind the children's reference section, will the pair be able to work together, or is Sam's secret identity spoiled forever? A heartwarming tale about collaboration and creative ambitions, this book will enchant any young aspiring author or illustrator. Awards and praise for Library Mouse include Parenting magazine Book of the Year, IRA Teachers' Choice, Bill Martin Jr. Picture Book, Award nominee, NAPPA Gold Award, and Book Sense Pick [Star Symbol]. 'Ready-made to introduce a classroom writing activity...this is fun, fun, fun' - Booklist , starred review. 'Kirk's gouache illustrations lend warmth to his tale, which should encourage young would-be writers' - Kirkus Reviews . 'An excellent premise...engaging, expressive...' - School Library Journal .
