Carlo the Mouse Book 2: Now We’re Talking! by Mrs. D


Carlo the Mouse Book 2: Now We’re Talking! by Mrs. D

My review follows the book blurb found on Amazon.

“Listen to the news and keep your eyes open, because a curious little mouse has had his wish come true! Now We’re Talking! is the second in a series of books on Carlo’s adventures. This nosy little mouse leaves home for the first time to explore life inside the hospital. But Hospitalia is a strange place, and there’s no place for him to hide. Cold, sterile, and unfriendly, the hospital looks nothing like Carlo had imagined while sitting at home. Before he knows what’s up, the kitchen staff are on his tail. Will the hungry mouse manage to trick the hospital manager, cook, and exterminator without breaking the rules his parents taught him? You’ll find out in Mrs. D.’s next book on Carlo the Mouse, What’s Going On? If this clever mouse outwits you, don’t get discouraged. Keep reading and follow Carlo’s adventures!”


In book two of this series, we find that Carlo the Mouse finally gets to leave home through a tiny mouse hole in the basement wall in which he was born and lives with his parents. Carlo hates rules and he learned the kinds of trouble he could get into by not following rules. First he finds the hallways and they are bright white and huge, with nowhere to hide. The doctors’ shadows are huge and he scampers to hide. The patients are sad, sick, and confused. In trying to find the kitchen, he delves into a couple patient rooms and there ensues more adventure for this young mouse. When he finally finds the kitchen and the staff see him, they try to catch Carlo with brooms, saucepans, and all manner of kitchen things. Five stars for this lovely children’s picture book and illustrations. What happened to Carlo? Book three should tell us.
