It is a book that can be read and enjoyed by children and adults
From the Forward of the Book:
Whimsically illustrated, this tale artfully outlines a universal approach for
the times we are immobilized by life's burdens. The story of the mouse, with
whom we quickly identify, compassionately brings together thinking through the
issues, taking calculated risks, and bearing the inevitable cost of moving ahead
to a future we can only dream of while stuck.
The story promotes the interaction of little readers with adults, as they
process not only the solutions, but also the cost of freedom. Adult readers will
undoubtedly be challenged and inspired to look at possible parallels in their
Delightful and entertaining, with several layers of meaning, I am confident
in recommending this book to adults and children alike. We do, after all, have
our own unique rocks, which hold us back.
