This house needs a mouse!
Okay, MY house does not need a mouse – at least I didn’t think so until we read This House Needs a Mouse by C. Jeffrey Nunnally.
By the way, I was provided a copy in exchange for my review, but all opinions are my own.
Isn’t it cute?
My kids love this book. They loved it before I even had a chance to read it to them.
In fact, when the package with the book arrived, I took it out of the box, set the book on the table, and went into the kitchen to do the dishes. I returned to this site:
My sweet girl found the book on the table, was intrigued by it, and sat down and read it to her imaginary “class.” She loved the book at first glance.
And so did I.
This is a truly sweet book. It’s a giggly kind of book, a rhyming book, and a fun to look at book. The children were worried when the mouse was left alone in the house, and scared when the new family tried to get rid of him. But the story, thankfully, had a very happy ending.
This is a great book for young readers – well written to engage and entertain young readers. It is well illustrated – perfectly suited to the playful language of the book.
After reading it, and looking at the crumbs all over our floor, we decided our house also is a house that needs a mouse!
True to the reviews, this book is good for all ages. My 2, 4, 7 year old’s all giggled at the book and have enjoyed reading it over and over again.
I might have even enjoyed it just as much as them! 🙂
This House Needs A Mouse is available now on the book’s website, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Big Tent Books.
Go on over and grab a copy for your kids today!

Scarlet asks me to read it to her nightly! I feel badly because I couldn’t do it tonight because it’s a big read and I have a twitter party. Tomorrow then!

Alexa! Happy New Year! Thank you so much for reviewing my book and for your very kind and thoughtful response to it! LOVE the pics of your daughter reading the book to her imaginary class. My house continually needs a mouse… we hired a house-cleaner instead! Mice leave too much behind! Believe me, we know from experience! Anyway, I really appreciate your encapsulation of the book… “This is a truly sweet book. It’s a giggly kind of book, a rhyming book, and a fun to look at book.” Doesn’t get more satisfying than that… thank you again. C. Jeffrey Nunnally
