Read this with Quinton and Lucia. Q read it at school while we were reading it aloud at bedtime. He was into it :-) I'm letting Lu pick the next book, so she remains interested...

I loved this series when I was a child! It was one of my favourites, and I always imagined that the Littles lived in my house and tried to think of things that they would see and do.

I re-read it with my kids, and they loved it too!

Little family lived in the Biggs' walls, they ran into some trouble when repairing the Biggs' house when they were on vacation. The Newcombs had moved in and have brought mice into the house along with a cat. The Littles were in danger and they could not go about their everyday lives. The mice started to come as the Newcombs left crumbs everywhere. The Littles soon had to find a way to get rid of the mice. They suggest a bow and arrow. The plot of this story is to engage readers in something that seems so imaginative, but could be so real. It contains realistic characters and the reader can connect with the characters as well.
