Description

A field mouse’s place is in the field—or so say Rollie’s father, his grandfather, and everyone he has ever known.

But Rollie wants something more. So one day, he sets off down the path toward the Kingdom of Muddmoor, not knowing what he’ll find. In the adventures that follow, Rollie encounters many strange and wonderful things, from a talking fish and floating cows to the official Wizard of Muddmoor. But it turns out that what the kingdom needs most may just be the skills of one small field mouse.

Dean Morrissey’s lush paintings and magical story bring Rollie to life as the tiny hero who, with a little courage, makes a huge difference.




About the Author

Dean Morrissey has made up stories to go with his work ever since he first began to paint. Eventually he began writing and illustrating children’s books. The highly successful Ship of Dreams, a New York Times Best Illustrated Book, was published in 1990, followed by The Great Kettles, which won a Gold Medal from the Society of Illustrators. His other books include The Christmas Ship, The Moon Robber, The Monster Trap, and The Crimson Comet. Dean Morrissey lives on the south shore of Massachusetts with his wife and son, surrounded by many of the amazing contraptions that are found in his paintings.
