"A sweet friendship develops between Dan the mouse and Milly the cat who helps him when he is in trouble."
Mouse Mountain is an adventure story based around two mice, Dan and Hawthorne who have the ability to “shift” or move by the power of thought. A good fantasy atmosphere is set and there is a lot of action, as Dan the mouse discovers that Hawthorne has led him up a mountain to meet a not so friendly Weasel.
A sweet friendship develops between Dan the mouse and Milly the cat who helps him when he is in trouble. There is a group of rats who are the enemies of the mice and cats, who lock them up in their own dungeons! There is a lot of action but some of the descriptions of the fights are a little graphic for younger children, I would say the target audience for this book is readers aged nine to twelve. There is a happy ending and the characters of Dan and Milly are very likeable.
