Carlo the Mouse, Book 5: Nothing Is Safe in the Mouse’s Life


Carlo the Mouse, Book 5: Nothing Is Safe in the Mouse’s Life by Mrs. D.

First the book blurb found on Amazon.

“A whisker-licking story of one kind little mouse! Who would ever suspect that Carlo would meet Fidel the cat inside the hospital? Who would ever believe that the tricky young mouse would outsmart the old cat? Who would ever imagine that for the first time in his life, the daring mouse would venture away from his home and find himself outside the hospital? Homeless, cold, and hungry, Carlo and his family face attacks from vicious birds. Throughout his dangerous journey, Carlo finds adventure aplenty. He learns about life outside the hospital and the dangers that mice face on a daily basis. Determined to return home safely, Carlo has grown up and finally understands why he must obey the rules his parents taught him. Follow the unexpected adventures of this bold little mouse!”

Mrs. D. has done it again! Carlo the Mouse, Book 5: Nothing Is Safe in the Mouse’s Life is an endearing children’s book.  Carlo is in wellness mode from his bout with Chicken Pox, and he learns many things about the state he and his parents live in – Florida – and the dangers lurking outside the hospital. This mischievous young mouse didn’t understand his parent’s rules, but he did learn that cats and birds would love to have him for their dinner. Although this is book five in a series, it can be read as a stand-a-lone book. I highly suggest the first four books in this series and well as this one – the fifth! Chanoa has perfectly captured Carlo and his surroundings and family, in colorful and perfect illustrations. Solid five stars!
