Description
In the beloved tradition of "The Borrowers," "The Tale of Desperaux," and "The Cricket in Times Square," here is an irresistible adventure story of the tiny individuals who secretly live among us humans.
Helena is the oldest of four mouse siblings who live in the walls of the Cranston estate. It is 1887 when the nouveau riche Cranstons decide to take a cruise ship to England in search of a husband for their awkward older daughter. The Cranston mice stow away in the luggage . . . and so begins the time of their lives, as they meet intriguing, cosmopolitan mice onboard and take it upon themselves to help the human Cranston daughters find love. They might just find perfect futures for themselves as well
Full of laughs, near-misses, and surprise, this is Richard Peck at his best and most playful.
