2th Grade and Up
What makes Isaiah so unique? First, his fur is as blue as the sky–which until recently was something he’d never seen, but had read all about. That’s right–Isaiah can read, and write. He can also talk to humans…if any of them are willing to listen!
After a dramatic escape from a mysterious laboratory, Isaiah is separated from his “mischief” (which is the word for a mouse family), and has to use his special skills to survive in the dangerous outdoors, and hopefully find his missing family. But in a world of cruel cats, hungry owls, and terrified people, it’s hard for a young, lone mouse to make it alone. When he meets an equally unusual and lonely human girl named Hailey, the two soon learn that true friendship can transcend all barriers.
This story is extremely sweet and the illustrations make the story all the more better. Anyone who enjoys the movie Mouse Huntor the book Stuart Little, this is the story for you.
I’ve always thought mice were interesting creatures. Every time I went to the pet store as a kid I loved watching the little white mice run on their wheel. There would always be three or more mice trying to use the wheel at the same time and one mouse would always be facing the opposite direction as the others and would end up spinning around and around before being flung off, so cute. I like mice but only when they’re inside a pet cage, they just look so sweet and innocent. But if I saw one in the wild I’d probably freak out, I don’t know where that mouse has been.
This story reminded me of my original favorite blue mouse, Tutter from Disney Channel’s Playhouse Disney show Bear in the Big Blue House. See picture below:
This show premiered back in 1997 and was one of my favorite shows when I was a kid. You can still find some episodes on YouTube and I highly recommend checking them out.
