This is another book Fritz received at last evening's scavenger hunt at his school. This was the first book he selected, although he didn't peruse as much as take the closest book to him.

This book was okay. A boy is in a writer's group. He ends up being paired with the instructor since he was the odd one out. He is to write a story and have it illustrated. The boy discovers some writing by an unknown. It turns out the library mouse left it behind by accident. The boy ferrets out the secret.

In the end, the mouse illustrates the book the boy wrote much to the pleasure of everyone else, although the boy keeps his rodent friend a secret.

It's an entertaining enough tale, although no masterpiece.
****
This morning, my little boy was all about this book. Why? Who knows.

He walked around all morning and then stated I had to read it to him. Gladly. We had a good time. He liked my deep narrator voice I used.

We had a pleasant time reading this together. :)
