Two brothers, Charlie and Mouse have gone on many adventures in their book series. In this fifth installment, Charlie and Mouse find something they lost, find someone that might be lost, and find something that may be theirs forever.

In this beginning chapter book, kids who are ready for more than a picture book but not quite ready for a full-on chapter book will find reading this series to be a successful reading experience. There are still plenty of pictures to go along with the story along with repetitive text throughout the individual chapters and the whole book. This particular book has four chapters or stories within the book that feature Charlie and Mouse finding things lost and finding new things.

I love that Charlie and Mouse are close brothers who do everything together. They are kind to each other and help each other, especially when Mouse has lost his beloved blanket. Charlie drops everything to help him find it. Charlie and Mouse also have parents that are willing to try new things and offer the boys support and love when things don’t always work out.

The Charlie and Mouse series is a great new series for kids to feel more independent with their reading. Kids that love sibling stories, stories about dogs, or books that offer positive messages will enjoy this book and the series. Get the whole series for a reader on your Christmas list.

Laurel Snyder is the author of many books for children. She lives and writes in a small yellow house in Atlanta, Georgia, which she shares with her husband and two sons. She would like to state for the record that while none of these stories are exactly true, none of them are exactly untrue either.

Emily Hughes is an illustrator (and sometimes writer) who lives in London, England, while thinking fondly of her hometown in Hilo, Hawaii. When making books, she uses pencils, her tablet, and a very, very generous stack of paper.
