To me, this book was reminiscent of The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. It was a very cute historical book. I love when historical books don’t read as though their a chronological timeline of that period. It helps that the main character was a mouse and not a historical person. All Celeste wants is a place to call home. The home she has is overrun by rats. The home she gets afterwards is a precarious situation in a man’s shirt pocket. How can she make friends? How can she find her permanent home. A great book for those who feel displaced and need to realize that home is where you make it. Or where the heart is. Or whatever other sappy phrase you can think of. Highly suggested as a read aloud.
