Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A small creature offers his big voice for aspiring authors everywhere.

Every child can be a writer — and Library Mouse shows them how!

Beloved children's books author and illustrator Daniel Kirk wonderfully brings to life the story of Sam, a library mouse. Sam's home was in a little hole in the wall in the children's reference books section, and he thought that life was very good indeed. For Sam loved to read. He read picture books and chapter books, biographies and poetry, and ghost stories and mysteries. Sam read so much that finally one day he decided to write books himself!

Sam shared his books with other library visitors by placing them on a bookshelf at night. Until there came the time that people wanted to meet this talented author. Whatever was Sam to do?

The joy of reading, writing, and sharing is brought to life in this warmhearted tale.

Review:

"Naturalistic vignettes and full-page scenes show Sam at work or imagining, as well as an active library. The titles of the books around him add to the fun." Children's Literature

Synopsis:

When two friendsandmdash;a sock monkey and a plush toy dogandmdash;get into an argument during playtime, Monkey gets his feelings hurt and proclaims, andldquo;You are not my friend!andrdquo; But when he takes his ball to find someone new to play with, he quickly learns that maybe he hasnandrsquo;t been a very good friend, either.
Bestselling author/illustrator Daniel Kirk uses bold and humorous illustrations to convey the important message that sharing and other acts of friendship are two-way streets.
