it was amazing
bookshelves: must-own-to-read-over-and-over

I loved this book so much. I read it out loud to my children and had to stop here and there for the tears of happiness and the jumping for joy. It's about the courage and sacrifice of a little mouse for true love (not romantic love, but true, selfless love) and how it allows him to defeat evil. It's also about the power of hearth and home and a good pot of soup!
