Awesome book! Just finished it up! Loved it! Great work and I would love to see this hit the big screen

Daniel

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
