A wonderful mix of Upstairs Downstairs and The Borrowers, this is the first animal story from the incredible Peck. Helena is the eldest of the Cranston family of mice. Her parents are both dead as are her older sisters. It is 1887 and the human Cranston family is planning a trip to England to get their eldest daughter wed. So the mouse family also has to decide. Do they travel across the dangerous and deadly water with the family or stay behind in an empty house. Helena hopes that the trip will help with some of the problems she has been fretting about. Her younger brother is always getting into scrapes and needs some direction. One of her younger sisters is far too attached to one of the human daughters. So the family embarks on a trip where they discover the large impact a family of mice can have on their humans.
