My name is Mrs. D. and I am an author of children's books. Currently, I’m juggling many projects including several new books. I love to write. I love this beautiful language. I write because I have something to share. I write because maybe someday, someone in this world may need my experience. I write for one simple reason. I love how it makes me feel: free.
Basil is the Sherlock Holmes of the mouse world, and his tales are written down by his friend, Dr. David Q. Dawson. While not solving mysteries, Basil's hobbies include archery, archaeology and mountaineering. Dr. Dawson is a lover of all cheeses. This series is just delightful.
This book is one from the delightful series about the mice who live in the Anglican church of Saint John, Worthlethorpe, England. Two of the mice, Arthur and Humphrey, are assisted by church cat Sampson in their escapades. In this outing the trio borrow a ring, have it stolen, and then get it back, all to help their friend Percy, a shaggy dog with a golden personality.
Mahalia Mouse and her family live under Dunster House, an old Harvard dormitory. One day while foraging for food, Mahalia gets trapped in a student's backpack and finds that she loves the lecture she overhears. One thing leads to another and Mahalia ends up going to school.
There are so many chores to do in the morning on a farm.... chickens to be fed, the cow to be milked and the fields need tilled with the big tractor. Maisy does this and more and all before she can have her own breakfast. Cute story.
A children's choice favorite! The covers tell the story on my shelf: Beverly Cleary's books are "loved to death" every year. I replace Ralph S. Mouse frequently because the children check it out over and over again.
The story of a two-inch mouse born into an Upper East Side human family. The best children's book featuring New York City as a central character; bonus points for canoe scenes. The New Yorker recently ran a feature about the role this book played in overturning the entrenched Children's Lit power structure overseen by Anne Carol Moore of the New York Public Library. That in itself is a remarkable story. (Editor's note: for some inexplicable reason, "Stuart Little" isn't for sale as a single volume. Instead it must be purchased as part of a box set as shown here, or with a small children's necklace that will undoubtedly break, be lost, or be swallowed by one of your children within hours.)
This delightful story, written and illustrated by Beatrix Potter in 1918, tells the tale of Johnny Town-Mouse who makes country mouse Timmy Willie feel right at home when he finds himself inadvertently alone in the big city. This is a retelling of Aesop's fable "The Town Mouse and The Country Mouse."
The mice of the United States elect a President just like American humans. Through President Woodrow G. Washingtail, children (as well as their parents and anyone lucky enough to read this charming educational story) will learn about the workings of the U.S. government. The popularity of this book started a series.
