Got a precocious elementary child that likes to play with words? Like to play with words yourself? This is a fun read about a mouse who likes to use words (to eat, to hold off the cat, etc), but learns how much more there is in words when they are used to tell stories. Lot's of play with words, unusual words in this adventure that taps into a love for words, stories, and books.Os.

This little mouse explores a story while having an adventure with vocabulary. Very witty and cleverly written.

A great story about a mouse who lives in a bookstore, eats delicious words, and eats himself into a story about knights and dragons.

Well this book is a Rebekah Caudil book so I was actually kind of surprised nobody wrote a review so I decided I will!! Well the news is it is pretty good and creative the author definately is creative!!! But it was very hard to follow!! It is a fairly short book, though! I don't understand why it is a Rebekah Caudil book I have read tons better books!!!
