From the website of original publisher TSR regarding Paul Kidd: "Up and coming novel releases may include... Mus of Kerbridge (2nd release by Streamline)..."
Those of us who have taken immense pleasure from reading and re-reading "Mus of Kerbridge" will be glad to see a second printing hit the shelves. Notice the quote says "may include" - it would be helpful if Mus fans wrote to Mr. Kidd via TSR and to Streamline to help facilitate this reprinting!
Perhaps it was the cute and rather silly picture on the cover, but "Mus of Kerbridge" didn't sell nearly as well as the story inside the cutesy cover deserved. I bought it when it first came out, in spite of the cover... and loved it! The story is as enjoyable for adults as it is for children; it has been a well-received and well-read gift many times. It has certainly kept my attention throughout the years and I still enjoy it quite as much as I did the first time!
The dialogue is occasionally a bit overdone in my opinion, but can not detract from the overall charm of this well-told tale. The plot is well-woven and the characters have substantial personalities and emotions. They are admirable people, even the enemy queen, showing strength of spirit and courage and a great lesson in appreciation for life.

Format: Paperback
When I first saw the cover, I thought it was Reepicheep from the Dawn Treader, the talking mouse of Narnia. It had a feather on its head, a needle of a sword and it stood on its hindlegs. This book deserved better attention, unlike blood and gore and cynical world weariness which seemed to pervade most fantasy books today.
Mus of Kerbridge is almost like one of Grimm's or Han Christian Anderson's fairy tales - of knights and castles, ladies and love, magic abound and courage renowned.
In a magical world which was not named, centaurs, humans, satyrs and harpies dwelt together within the same kingdoms. A political intrigue led to an accident which created another sentient race - the mouse of which Mus was the first. Mus was forced to infiltrate the chamber of Miriam, a centaur lady. Turning against his tormentor, and swore to protect his lady.
As war threatened the kingdom, Mus became the source of inspiration to battle-weary soldiers to rally against the invaders.
This book is very much written to relate to children, but cynical adults could learn a lot from it, if only to open themselves to the possibility of beauty and kindness.
Paul Kidd managed to re-create the fantasy feeling of childhood days in an expanded puss-in-boots fantasy.

I have read this book many times, but to me, it never gets old. It is my favorite book of all time, and that is a large statement. I think it is well written, action packed, sweet, and very comical. I would reccomend this book to anyone in search of a good novel. There is never a dull moment, but it has enough depth to make it great.

I have already left a message here, but I feel that something else is necessary. After I left a review here, the author was kind enough the email me and thank me. I was too shy to email back and thank him. But I would just like to say that I love this book and that I hope it returns to print. It should,it really should. Even after a couple of years, It is stil my favorite book, and I have read many books. The other people here have reiterated their wonder in the quality of this novel so I will not be redundent. But, let me say that I find the book a sort of sanctuary where I can return to after I grow weary or depressed. Not that I am obsessed or anything. I only read it about 6 times :0)

This book is excellent. I've had it for years and still read it from time to time. It's just too bad that it's out of print. This book has magic, romance, sword fighting, war, trickery and deceit. The playing in politics, the greed of war and the fight between good and evil. This book has a pleasant variety of characters and creatures. Centaurs, pixies, satyrs, humans, and mice, along with many more. I can only hope you read it and are captured by it.

Mus of Kerbridge is a thoroughly enjoyable book, and its author, Paul Kidd, is a talented and underappreciated writer.

This was his first book, which I *had* to track down and read, based on the reviews -- and I'm awfully glad I did.

I wish this story could find a wider audience so as many people as possible could be as charmed as I was by this magical tale.

Well-written stories about heroes are to be treasured -- particularly when it's a brave little mouse wielding a needle for a sword.

Mr. Kidd, if you see this -- thank you for giving us Mus of Kerbridge. It was a genuine pleasure to read.

Format: Paperback
this book, is without a doubt my favorite book. The best Ive ever read. I'm not just saying that cause i'M writing a review for it, but that I absolutely treasure this book. I read it about three years ago, it looked like a average fantasy book,and a wasnt a very big fantasy person, so i decided to try it not really expecting anything fantastic, cause it was a fantasy novel,but i was so, supremely surprised. Paul Kidd, the author, is such a wonderful storyteller,he makes every page imaginitive and a delight.
