Cynthia Voigt crafts a novel about discovery, perspective, and the meaning of home—all through the eyes of an affable and worried little mouse. Fredle is an earnest young fellow suddenly cast out of his cozy home behind the kitchen cabinets—into the outside. It's a new world of color and texture and grass and sky. But with all that comes snakes and rain and lawnmowers and raccoons and a different sort of mouse (field mice, they're called) not entirely trustworthy. Do the dangers outweigh the thrill of discovery? Fredle's quest to get back inside soon becomes a wild adventure of predators and allies, of color and sound, of discovery and nostalgia. And, as Fredle himself will come to understand, of freedom.

    " Young Fredle the mouse learns that asking questions about tradition can lead to danger, and freedom, and a better life full of adventure and family. Gr. 3-5. "

    " not that great it was pointless "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Lisa | 1/11/2014

    " Book was ok but a little below my interest level. It is written for children but Voigt has some great classics so I thought I'd check it out. Again, it is ok but the message is a little in your face and the outcomes fairly predictable. "

    " Though this is a children's book, it's a beautiful illustration of how people and cultures can change if we make the effort to understand each other. "
