Staff Reviews

He lives a quiet life in the reference section of an antiquarian bookstore until chased into fiction by the bookstore cat. Here the bookstore mouse reads himself into a medieval tale complete with a fire-breathing dragon! But with characters named Cervantes, Goliard, Chaucer, and Censor, is this really just a tale of adventure?


— From The Bookstore Mouse


He lives in a bookstore behind a large WALL OF WORDS.
He eats DELICIOUS WORDS from recipes.
He throws SHARP WORDS and POINTED REMARKS at his enemy.
And one day he slips through the words into a story that is the greatest adventure of his life.

A clever and wise fable, this tale is for every book lover, every story lover, and every lover of words.
