I gave this books 3 stars because I could take it or leave it. It's a cute story about a mouse who is a detective. I could use this book as a read aloud in my classroom. ( )

This was a sweet story about friendship and finding ones “niche” in the world. I loved the clever illustrations and witty text. This story is one that I’m sure primary students would love. The personification of the mouse is very cute, and he is a very likable character. ( )

The story begins on Offley Street where Hermelin an extraordinarily smart mouse lives. When things go missing Hermelin gets to work helping the humans by leaving notes to tell them where they're missing items are. They are so happy that they throw him a party, but it all goes wrong when they realize he is a mouse.

Hermelin the Detective mouse was hilarious. He wanted to help everyone find all off their item that they have lost. So he started to use this typewriter to write letters to people once he had found the items. People were so thankful for Hermelin, but nobody knew who he was. So they posted an invitation for Hermelin to see on the commutation board. Hermelin had seen the invite and was so happy that everyone wanted to thank him. Once he arrived at the party, he said hello to someone and everyone started to scream mouse. He didn’t understand why everyone had screamed mouse at him, but then he looked up what a mouse was. Once he had found out what he was he felt so alone, and wanted to run away. That night he went to sleep and someone left him a note seeing if there was a mouse that could use a typewriter. ( )
