Excerpt from a review by Caroline
Woodward, author of Singing Away the Dark, The Village of Many Hats and A West Coast Summer for children, and other books for adults:
"In Shirley Martin's playful hands, a diverse cast of characters and a sweetly mischievous plot are kept rolling with a runaway mouse leading the way to understanding and acceptance at last.
A delightful and insightful story
for 8-12 year olds."
Excerpt from a review by Joanna Streetly, author of Wild Fierce Life: Dangerous Moments on the Outer Coast:
"This entertaining story for 8-12 year olds features a lovable and feisty redhead whose freckled Irish charm and hair-brained Irish Setter keep you turning pages. I kept finishing a chapter and thinking "I'll just read one more..."
Shirley Martin has created a memorable character, one that kids everywhere
will relate to."
