Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

My Son (9) chose this book and loved it, immediately begging for the second in the series. Some time later, I was on a road trip with a work colleague and we decided to listen to it. The narration was fantastic, with different voices and accents given to each character. We really enjoyed the adventure, and when we finished our work travel and were a few chapters from the end still, my colleague felt compelled to purchase it too, so she could hear the end.
I thoroughly recommend this audio book to anyone who enjoys adventure fantasy novels.

A church mouse is no ordinary mouse, and Hildegarde - the Mouse Mistress of Saint Bartholemew's - is no ordinary mouse leader. It falls to her to keep all the church mice safe and out of sight. But when a few parishioners report mouse sightings, Hildegarde and the rest of the church mice must face a most dreadful consequence: the Great X. To complicate things, a ceremony called the Blessing of the Animals is fast approaching. Saint Bartholemew's will soon be filled with pets... including cats!

Where does Bless This Mouse rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I would rank it 9/10 of all the books I've ever read. The story was from a mouse's point of view and I enjoyed it and have listened to it a lot

What other book might you compare Bless This Mouse to and why?

It reminds me a bit of Mrs Frisby and the Rats of Nimh, a community of mice in a church facing a great threat that could destroy them all.

Any additional comments?

My brother (7) and I really liked this story and would recommend it for kids aged 5- 10 yrs old.
