These are the three doubled sided pages of notes I took while listening to the book. There's so much good stuff packed into this exciting story!
Here is a great quote I noted from the beginning of the book:
An interesting fate, sometimes involving rats, sometimes not, awaits almost everyone, mouse or man, who does not conform.And here's one from a little later:
Stories that are not pretty have a certain value too...everything cannot always be sweetness and lightAnd another loose quote from a little later still:
when the powerful are made weak, revealed to be human, to have hearts, it is terrifyingAnd these powerful words of wisdom from the cook:
when times are terrible, soup is the answer
Seriously, this little book is so well written and has so many great literary techniques. The descriptions leave you seeing and smelling everything, but yet they are not tedious. The story is full of action and suspense.
This book is definitely at the top of our favourites list at the moment.
Check it out and tell us what you think.
