"The Mice Storm shines a light on unusual friendships, grief, and the challenges of being a child in the foster system. Clark shows his readers that while loss can be debilitating, a life full of possibilities continues for those left behind. Ideal for fans of Ratatouille and Redwall. After finishing The Mice Storm, I am eagerly awaiting his next release."
This story is interesting it has a mixture of History, battles, and family...and that is just in the first few chapters. I enjoyed this book because the author did a great job of ensuring that the reader liked all the characters. I mean mice fighting mice what a concept. But, the one truth that flows continuously throughout this book is looking for a place of really belonging. Flynn is lost right now and anyone who shows any kindness is like a breath of fresh air. Funny thing about receiving kindness Flynn does not understand that nothing is free. Everything and everyone has an hidden agenda, what exactly that is you must read to find the answers. I recommend this story for everyone as it really has something for every reader. Whether you miss your family, love you fur baby, or just want a good ole fashion feel good story.
"I just finished The Mice Storm and it was definitely worth the read! It pulls at your heart strings yet gives you lots of adventure. I loved it! This book would be ideal for any preteen all the way to an adult!"
"Awesome book! Just finished it up! Loved it! Great work and I would love to see this hit the big screen!"
This book should be read by teens everywhere - there's fantasy and adventure, but all of that exists parallel to a really touching coming of age story. It reminds me of a Disney movie, but with even more layers. Clark does an amazing job making it accessible and relatable to a younger audience through the use of witty dialogue and great characters. But beyond the witty dialogue, the cool characters, the fantasy and the action, this is really a story of strength. I went from laughing to gasping to feeling teary-eyed to reading like crazy because I was so caught up in the mystery and the suspense and the inspiring messages.
The Mice Storm is a fun story that brings me back to my childhood, not only because I was ten in 1978 just like Flynn, but because it reminds me of the stories I read back then that used to capture my imagination. I've been a fan of talking mouse stories since seeing the Rescuers multiple times in the theater as a kid, and Timothy Clark takes me back to the same feeling I had back then.
What a fun read! Loved this adventure and the way it was written. Reminded me of my own childhood growing up in the same area. Handing it off to my teenage daughter. I know she will love it.
Loved it!! I could actually see this book as a movie. The personalities of the little mice just came alive. Would definitely recommend it.
