A children's book whose life lessons would benefit most of us adults. The Linnet's Tale focuses on a community of field mice whose value of family, love, thoughtfulness, togetherness, books and fun set the bar high.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743224981, Paperback)

"Share the romance, drama, and adventure of small-town life among the mice of Tottensea Burrows -- as told by a very entertaining bird

In the garden of an English cottage live the lovable, highly literate field mice of Tottensea Burrows -- Peebles Carryforth the Mayor; Opportune Baggs, the inventor; the Fieldpea family with their three beautiful daughters, Grenadine, Almandine, and Incarnadine; the widow Proserpine Pockets and her young son Farnaby; and Merchanty Swift, the bold mouse who becomes the hero of "The Linnet's Tale."

Brokenhearted when his beloved Pleasings Tatterstraw runs away with a charming French mouse, Merchanty, a daring trader, goes on to become a mouse of means. But when Tottensea Burrows is threatened, he risks everything to rescue his friends and neighbors. In the midst of danger, will he find love again?

Full of wit and sparkle and irresistible linguistic inventiveness, "The Linnet's Tale" delivers pure enjoyment.
