This is a retelling of a number of different fairy tales, like Jack & The Beanstalk, Puss in Boots, Little Red Riding Hood, through the perspective of a mouse that is about to be eaten by 2 house cats. The fairy tales are experiences and stories that have been passed down to this mouse over generations. It is a really cute story and the illustrations are adorable. It was be fun as a read-aloud and also a refreshing take on well-known fairy tales. Another plus is that the mouse is a baker and there are wonderful sentences about the wonderful wafting smells of baking cookies. I would bake some cookies and read this to my nieces and nephews if they were around.
