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!
Oh, dear. Within the stately stone walls of the church, life is not as serene or safe as one might think. It will take the courage and patience of a... well, of a saint to keep this scampering, squeaking tribe of Hildegarde's intact.
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.
