Carlo the Mouse Book 1: Too Many Rules for One Little Mouse by Mrs. D

My review follows the book blurb found on Amazon.

“Age 6-8 Grab your boots and hold on to your hat, because you are in for an exciting trip! The new series of Carlo the Mouse has been born. Too Many Rules for One Little Mouse is the first in a series of books on Carlo’s adventures. Each book will give readers an entertaining look into the life of a little mouse born inside a hospital’s walls. Clever, curious, and very impatient, Carlo the mouse dreams of the world outside the hospital. His parents teach him how to follow the rules and how to survive on his own, but Carlo’s insatiable desire for adventure constantly gets him in trouble. Will the little adventurer manage to survive when he leaves home? You’ll find out in Mrs. D.’s next books on Carlo the mouse. Let your imagination soar in this full series of Carlo’s adventures!”

Review:

I fell in love with Carlo from the beginning. Carlo was born in a basement wall next to the kitchen. He loved cheese and couldn’t get enough. His first word was “yummy” (as he loved cheese) and it was endearing to read this story. As Carlo grew up, he wanted to venture out into the hospital and especially find the chef in the kitchen because of the delicious scent of foods he could smell from inside the walls. Finally his parents gave Carlo rules he must obey if he wanted to see parts of the hospital remain safe. Children learn life lessons through Carlo, and his adventures. The illustrations are beautiful and I can see a large series around this curious mouse. Five stars!
