I really like it because I like stories with adventure, and I really like the mice in the pictures because they are cute and cool.Katy aged 8
So, there’s this family of mice and one of the brothers he tells his family that he is going to go and get food, but he actually ends up going on a train and he ends up in France/ Paris. He finds another mouse and he helps him get back to his real home with adventures on the way. I really like it because I like stories with adventure, and I really like the mice in the pictures because they are cute and cool. Children who like having lots of adventures will enjoy this. The pictures are very good. The mice always have two round ears and teeth sticking out at the front. I like the Paris mouse because he has a funny mouse moustache. I now want to read the book illustrated by Axel Scheffler that was advertised at the back- Zippel: The little keyhole ghost. I did not know Axel Scheffler had illustrated books that weren’t picture books for younger children.
About the book
When Nibbles, an inquisitive young mouse, scampers onto a waiting train at the local station, little does he know he is about to be swept along on a cross-country adventure. Nibbles travels across his homeland of Germany, picks up a new friend in Switzerland, samples the delights of French cuisine in Paris and finally ends up as the star performer in a circus in England! But then Nibbles begins to feel homesick. How will one little mouse find his way home again?Translated by Rachel Ward.
