Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 3-5-In order to spread the word about climate change, mice have created and perfected tiny computers called Thumbtops. Humans Megan, her cousin Joey, and her Uncle Fred have great summer jobs at the plant that makes the technology. There's just one problem. The organization, W.A.T.C.H. (We're Against the Climate Hoax), is upset that someone has been spreading "lies" about climate change and they are determined to bring them down. The organization learns that mice, along with Megan and her Uncle Fred, are somehow involved. Inside the Mouse Nation, one or more of the mice have spilled most of the crackers in exchange for a reward. Now the animals and the humans are trying to escape the organization's clutches, and the Big Cheese (the leader of the mice) suspects Megan and her uncle of betrayal. Can they clear their names? Although it is a little preachy, this story teaches an important lesson. The characters are likable, strong, and well developed, and the plot is simple, but well done. The illustrations are detailed and complement the text. Readers who liked Mousenet (Hyperion, 2011) and enjoy fantasy, animal books, and adventure will appreciate this novel.-Kira Moody, Whitmore Public Library, Salt Lake City, UTα(c) Copyright 2013.

Review

PRAISE FOR MOUSENET

"Genuine goodwill, humor and impressive believability will have readers longing for mice as friends-not to mention political allies."
Kirkus Reviews

PRAISE FOR MOUSENET

"Give this to fans of Kate DiCamillo's The Tale of Despereaux (2003) and Elise Broach's Masterpiece (2008)."
Booklist

PRAISE FOR MOUSENET

"The strong-willed heroine and enthusiastically imagined world of computer-literate mice result in an amusing adventure."
Publishers Weekly

PRAISE FOR MOUSENET

Mousemobile is a worthy sequel to Mousenet, which was a tour de force. Mousemobile is great fun -- a witty, lively page-turner that would be a delight to read aloud to a child. My nieces loved the book. I did, too. Prudence Breitrose has crafted believable and interesting characters, and has constructed a plot filled with humor, danger, and the unexpected. This is wonderful book that anyone of any age could enjoy.

This book is a wonderful mix of allegory and fast moving plot that, even though it is written for young people, I really enjoyed. The mice are well organized, but have to deal with a traitor in their midst. Their tactics for dealing with the problem offer a model for humans. The dialog is lively and the writing is enriched with a warm sense of humor. The ideal birthday present.
