I first read "She Was Nice to Mice" in second grade, and was instantly captivated. Ten years later, its humorous, meaningful lines still often run through my head. This is an enchanting and entirely unexpected look at Elizabeth I through the eyes of a little mouse who lived at Buckingham Palace during the queen's reign, and was privy to the great ruler's deepest secrets (including her baldness!). The story is historically accurate and lively enough to capture the attention of young readers, and the adorable drawings provide the perfect accompaniment to the engaging text. This book holds special appeal for all ages as an outwardly sweet, simple tale that holds deeper meaning just below the surface. I keep it on my shelf next to Winnie the Pooh and the Narnia chronicles as a book I will never outgrow.

From a mouse-eye point of view, tales are told of fun and folic in Queen Elizabeth I's court. It seems that Queen Elizabeth had a liking for mice, hence the mice's fascinating involvement in the court. This book is a wonderful read for all ages, a splendidly vivid, magificantly creative endeavor. The drawings are delightful and the prose is fluid, witty and wry. Sheedy is brilliant; the book is perfect. "She Was Nice To Mice" is a majorly enjoyable book that should be a classic along the lines with with Stuart Little.

I read this book when i was 14. I found out that Ally was only a child herself when she wrote it and that alone encouraged me to write. I think this is a great influence to use with children to let them realize that they can do some things just like adults, and get paid for it if they just put their imagination to work. I've since forgotten most of the book, i remember it was a bit beyond my comprehension at the time. But i do remember i enjoyed it.

Format: Hardcover
This a book about England's glory days and one of the few women who ruled England alone. It also tells a story of the mice who lived in the palace and witnessed all that went on inside. It begins with a mouse who lives in a house near Buckingham Palace. She recieves an old diary of one of her ancestors, who lived during the rein of Elizabeth the First. The story tells of Elizabeths's life and the political situation at the time, and also of the way she protected the mice who lived in the palace. The story has some twists, and also details the lifestyles of the court. I would reccomend this book if you like children's fiction, have an eye for detail, and enjoy stories of the Middle Ages.
