Description

A field mouses place is in the fieldor so say Rollies 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 hell 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 Morrisseys lush paintings and magical story bring Rollie to life as the tiny hero who, with a little courage, makes a huge difference.
