Editorial Reviews

A miserable mouse is weary of his rodent lifestyle: "people set traps on us and sick cats on us", he tells a local wizard. The mouse wants to be something else – he’s not sure exactly what. Hoping to transform himself, the mouse procures a magical potion from the wizard. Unfortunately, the wizard’s spells never work, and chances are this mirthless mouse will stay just that – a mouse. Then again, as young listeners will discover, the life of mice is rather nice after all.

Actor Ian Thomson is sprightly and animated as he portrays a stuffy, witless wizard and his melancholy mouse patron. Thomson’s lively character acting ensures young listeners will have no trouble understanding this important message about being comfortable in one’s own skin.

Publisher's Summary

A visit to the wizard to buy a magic spell seems to be the best solution for a little mouse who wants to be something else.
