By Jacqueline Mead. I designed the book with twelve chapters in mind. I then set each chapter in a season following Mr. Mouse over three years.

Each chapter is its own short story, making this an ideal book for bedtime.

Join Mr. Mouse as he tends to his award-winning garden, makes friendships, meets Hilda, his future wife, all the while drinking lots of tea and eating lots of cake.

Mr. Mouse is a popular character whose door is always open, who is on hand to help anyone who needs help, who will rally around a worthwhile cause, and who is highly thought of throughout the woodland community.

Read about the woodlands during a harsh winter when the woodlands are covered in six-foot snowdrifts, during spring when the season is changing from winter, summer when Mr. Mouse’s award-winning gardens are at their best and autumn when the trees and plants are losing their leaves.

I hope Mr. Mouse, with a house on the River Louse, will become a favourite bedtime story for your children.
