Book Review - Lindbergh: The Tale of a Flying Mouse
About the Book
One small step for a mouse; one giant leap for aviation.
These are dark times . . . for a small mouse. A new invention—the mechanical mousetrap—has caused all the mice but one to flee to America, the land of the free. But with cats guarding the steamships, trans-Atlantic crossings are no longer safe. In the bleakest of places . . . the one remaining mouse has a brilliant idea. He must learn to fly!
Debut illustrator Torben Kuhlmann’s inventive tale and stunning illustrations will capture the imagination of readers—young and old—with the death-defying feats of this courageous young mouse.
My Take on the Book
This was a beautiful story with amazing illustrations! For me the illustrations were the part of the book that truly transported me. I found myself getting lost in the images and looking at all of the rich detail that accompanied the story itself. The story was inspiring and shares an important message that all of our kids must learn, but the author has also done a tremendous job at capturing the essence of the story on each page through imagery. I also appreciated how much you learn in the book. The author has included some great aviation references in the book that any child will find fascinating. This is a book you will find yourself keeping for years to come!
