Bless This Mouse


Bless This Mouse Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A resilient and quirky colony of church mice fears another Great X more than they fear cats. Under Mouse Mistress Hildegardes leadership, they save themselves from one danger after another—sometimes just by the skin of their tails! Can one ultimate act of bravery during the feast day of St. Francis get Father Murphy to bless these mice and keep them safe forever? Rife with humor and personality, this young middle-grade novel has an old-fashioned feel with the makings of a modern classic.

About the Author

Lois Lowry is known for her versatility and invention as a writer. She was born in Hawaii and grew up in New York, Pennsylvania, and Japan. After several years at Brown University, she turned to her family and to writing. She is the author of more than thirty books for young adults, including the popular Anastasia Krupnik and Gooney Bird series. She has received countless honors, among them the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award, the Dorothy Canfield Fisher Award, the California Young Readers Medal, and the Mark Twain Award. She received Newbery Medals for two of her novels, Number the Stars and The Giver. Her first novel, A Summer to Die, was awarded the International Reading Associations Childrens Book Award. Ms. Lowry now divides her time between Cambridge and a farmhouse in Maine. To learn more about Lois Lowry, see her website at www.loislowry.com.
