I really enjoy Henry Cole's sketches/illustrations as they remind me of my childhood favourites - Garth Williams and Quentin Blake. This is a cute adventure story about Sammy Shine, a mouse who is put in a remote operated airplane and finds himself long ways from home. While a real-life mouse freaks me out, I do enjoy books and movies with them :) This is a fun read out loud story, and a gorgeous book to flip through.

I grabbed this book just because it looked interesting and my 8 year old son devoured it! He read the entire book in 3 days and could hardly put it down. He keeps asking for another book just like this one!

After a crash landing, Sammy Shine is treated by the woodland creatures as a magical mouse who fell from the sky. This adventurous tale is rich in descriptive vocabulary and intriguing black & white illustrations. Grades 2-4
