    " Oh, how delightful! This goes on my wishlist to own. I borrowed it from the library on a friend's recommendation. The pictures were wonderfully done. The story was inspirational to children or adults! It made me want to make a bunch of little books to write. I already have quite a few young/new adult books I have written for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo.com) but it is easy to forget how much fun little paper books can be. I think everyone who has children or grandchildren, and even many of us who don't, should have around the house for inspiration. "

    " This book is about a mouse who lives in the library and loves to write books. Soon children in the library start to find his books and are curious as to who is writing these amazing books! He is shy but he wants to teach everyone that they can all be authors and write their very own stories too. The pictures in these books are beautiful. This is also a great book to show friendship :) "
