Very cute children's book about the "downstairs" Cranstons, house mice for the "upstairs" Cranstons (although they are the older family). This book brought to mind other anthropomorphic books such as Runaway Ralph, The Borrowers, The Mouse and the Motorcycle, etc. It a sweet story about the Cranston mouse family who follows the human Cranston family onto a ship traveling to England. Helena, the eldest sister is responsible for her brother and sisters since the death of her mother, father and two older sisters. She takes her job seriously but somehow ends up in numerous scrapes and dangerous situations. Kudos to Peck for all his funny cat references throughout the book. Probably best for ages 4 - 8.
