Crammed with amusing detail to pore over on every page, we will all be wishing for a diligent Station Mouse to reunite us with our lost property
The Station Mouse is a perfect bedtime read. Every page is a feast to the eye, with jokes and things to spot to keep it interesting read after read. The hero of our story is a most diligent mouse employed in the local railway station on a mission to keep the site clean and tidy. He does this under a strict Rule Book which, amongst many, dictates he must stay out of sight and never approach a passenger. He follows these rules most conscientiously until he spots the opportunity to reunite some lost property as a little boy drops his comforter while crossing the concourse. Hurray for the Station Mouse! I think we've all been unfortunate enough to lose something whilst travelling - if only there were more busy little mice reuniting property. This is a lovely book with original and charming illustrations and a cheerful storyline.
Maurice is the Station Mouse, and so he must follow The Station Mouse Handbook:
Rule 1: A Station Mouse must remain unseen.
Rule 2: A Station Mouse must never go out in the daytime.
Rule 3: A Station Mouse must never approach the passengers.
Now, there's a reason why these rules exist: people do not like mice. And if Maurice breaks the rules, even to help a little boy who has lost something very important, there's going to be a price to pay...
