Publisher's Summary

Cynthia Voigt crafts a novel about discovery, perspective, and the meaning of home - all through the eyes of an affable and worried little mouse. Fredle is an earnest young fellow suddenly cast out of his cozy home behind the kitchen cabinets - into the outside. It's a new world of color and texture and grass and sky. But with all that comes snakes and rain and lawnmowers and raccoons and a different sort of mouse (field mice, they're called) not entirely trustworthy. Do the dangers outweigh the thrill of discovery? Fredle's quest to get back inside soon becomes a wild adventure of predators and allies, of color and sound, of discovery and nostalgia. And, as Fredle himself will come to understand, of freedom.

Not good for kids under 9yo

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Had it been read by someone with a more interesting voice and had it been pitched for older kids, I think it might be a winner. My 5 year old granddaughter, who loves listening to stories, didn't like it. Coaxed to say a little more, she said it sounded too scary and sad.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

It is a very lifelike adventure of the big, scary cruel world of nature.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

A too 'schmaltzy' voice, which adds to tits scariness!

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Sadness and anxiety -- me, a psychiatrist!

Any additional comments?

None. I think I have made a point.
