Hope | 150 comments The adorable story of a very small mouse who would like to be a knight in shining armor and marry a princess. I loved the flowery style of the prose in this children’s novel, which adults will also appreciate. There is sarcasm but also truth. There are heroes and villains but also a good sense of moral complexity despite the simple story. We have empathy with each character and their needs and motivations and we find out that “happily ever after“ doesn’t always mean getting exactly what you want. Very satisfying tale of adventure, bravery and love.
