A church mouse is no ordinary mouse, and Hildegarde—the Mouse Mistress of Saint Bartholemew’s—is no ordinary mouse leader. It falls to her to keep all the church mice safe and out of sight.But when a few parishioners report mouse sightings, Hildegarde and the rest of the church mice must face a most dreadful consequence: the Great X. To complicate things, a ceremony called the Blessing of the Animals is fast approaching. Saint Bartholemew’s will soon be filled with pets . . . including cats! Oh, dear. Within the stately stone walls of the church, life is not as serene or safe as one might think. It will take the courage and patience of a—well, of a saint—to keep this scampering, squeaking tribe of Hildegarde’s intact.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Review by Jamie Forrest | 2/4/2014

    " The language of this book doesn't really match the story to me. The vocabulary is middle grade or higher while the story seems geared more towards the primary crowd. It strikes me as kind of the opposite of a high interest low vocab book. It took me about half the book to get into the story, but in the end, the story is quite charming. "

    " good story. Hildegarde is Mouse Mistress and has the job of keeping the mice in the church safe. This requires cooperation on the part of the mice and some yelling at mice to stop reproducing! Lucretia thinks she would be a better Mouse Mistress and tries to undermine Hildegarde. When the Great X (exterminator) comes the mice need to be brave; they cleverly thwart the Great X, and Lucretia gets her comeuppance. "

    " 'Bless this Mouse' is an adorable little novel that was a real joy to read. The illustrations through-out the novel made it easier to picture Hildegarde and her other companions and brought them to life in my imagination. Loved it!!! "
