This is a very interesting book about two brothers who found old letters in their attic between their two great great great uncles. It is a story inside of a story about two brothers who lived far away and kept in touch tell each other of their adventures.

This would be a good book to read before a history lesson. We learn things about the past from old documents. In the story the two mouse brothers stay up reading letters from their great great great uncle. They learn about their history and past from them. The same way we learned about our history. ( )
