By the author of Babe (which was made into a movie).  I just love his stories - the love he has for animals and children makes the books glow.  But they're not saccharine, or bland.

Very cute. I wish more of my students would voluntarily read this - I really think they'd enjoy it.

Flora is not just your average mouse. She is a school mouse. Born to a family of 12, Flora is the only one to took learning to heart.

Living in the Kindergarten room, she became interested in what the children did when they were there. After a bit, she discovered they were learning. This excited her and she decided that she would learn too.

The rest of her family weren't interested in learning reading, but Flora was dedicated. Her learning later paid off in saving her family.

I have read a few of Dick King-Smith's book and enjoyed them all. Yes, they are for kids and a quick read, but they do offer more than a cute story. There is always a take away lesson in each book.
