Reviews

"Rife with snappy asides and clever but never heavy-handed." -- The New York Times

* "Readers will revel in the detailed descriptions of mouse-sized joys, woes, and love connections." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review * "Is there anything Newbery Medalist Peck cannot do? Apparently not...Whimsical language, sure characterization, unflagging adventure, even romance." -- Kirkus, starred review * "The rodent world meets Upstairs, Downstairs in this rollicking comedy of manners that begs to be read aloud." -- Horn Book, starred review "By turns poignant and playful, engaging and exciting, and with a touch of romance, the story will have great appeal for the audience." -- Booklist "The fast-paced story is peppered with the author's characteristic sly wit and is pure fun." -- School Library Journal "Readers who like their animals cute, their history entertaining, and their endings happy will find full satisfaction here." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "Mr. Peck, a master at blending memorable characters, humor, history, and page-turning stories, is in top form here." -- Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "Peck's eye for family dynamics is excellent." -- Chicago Tribune Essential Books for Kids & Teens -- Common Sense Media
