The perfect introduction to chapter books for young readers, with the perfect mix of text and lovely illustrations for those who want to graduate from picture books but still enjoy illustrations to help the story along. Mouse is a most charming and welcoming character. ~ Reviewed by Jessica Wood

— From Mouse House Tales


What makes a mouse house a home? With a problem to solve, an unexpected friendship, and a little mystery to unravel, Mouse House Tales offers twice the story of a picture book and all the warmth and charm of a modern classic. The book's two stories can be read all at once, or one at a time, making it a perfect fit for those who want a longer, "big kid" book but aren't yet ready for text-heavy chapter books. Whether read aloud or by an independent reader, kids will relate to the emotions and friendships that help Mouse turn her "sweet little house" into a warm and inviting home filled with fun, friends--and cheese.

About the Author

Susan Pearson is a former publisher whose books for children include picture books, chapter books, mysteries, and collections of verse. She describes herself as "lucky" to be doing what she loves, "a detective" always in search of the right word or idea, and "a gardener" who likes to grow things both in the dirt and on the page (and where she often finds book-inspiring slugs). "Slugs in Love" and "How to Teach a Slug to Read" are among her recent books. Ms. Pearson shares her home with an "endlessly entertaining" cat named Archie.

Amanda Shepherd knew she would be an artist back in kindergarten and has since illustrated five children's books, and earned starred reviews. Originally from the Pacific Northwest, she lives in Texas with her husband Garbo and Polly, their "hurricane baby cat."
