Publisher's Summary

Flora was born on the first day of term in the new school year, which might be why she's a very special mouse indeed – a mouse who has taught herself to read!

Flora lives in a classroom, and is determined to learn all sorts of things that no mouse has ever learned before. Her family is horrified at first, but then Flora's reading saves their lives.

I really love this story!

The narrator is what really makes the story come to life. From Luvvy to the owl and ragged Robin the story is a treasure. The author addresses many social issues that is really fun to pick apart with a class or your cleaver youngster.

Nice Story, well read - beware the death count!

"A nice adventure story with a happy ending " Finn, aged 7

The kids enjoyed this story, it was nicely read and had lots going on. However, the death count is quite unlike anything I've heard for children before! A few moments of 'peril' too, so beware. Also for those who may be bothered - there is a hint towards teenage pregnancy / out of wedlock babies at the very end. My kids thought it odd that no marriage occurred, even though other characters were husbands and wives. I'm not overly old fashioned, it just seemed odd in a kids book, I'm particular the way it occurred. Overall message I guess is that education could save your life...
