This book is for little kids but its smurfawsome.
Its a cute story my son really enjoyed it.
This is an engaging and funny story! It also teaches resilience when life gets in the way (Mickey found out he was not a mouse, like he thought), and understanding when others are different (a kitten raised as a mouse by a mouse family). While the story is non-fiction with dialogue, there are many explanatory/informative paragraphs that are good examples of paragraphing for a young child (7 years old in this case) learning to write. The vocabulary and use of expression are also very good. This is a great book for many reasons!
