Young Fredle by Cynthia Voight is a sweet book about a little kitchen mouse. Poor Fredle (rhymes with metal) eats too much chocolate and gets kicked out of the nest because he's sick. This is where Fredle's adventures begin. As the reader you get to discover the world through Fredle's eyes, as he sees grass, and birds, and the stars for the first time. Much of the world is very dangerous for a fat little kitchen mouse, so Fredle has to learn quickly how to survive without his family to rely on. My favorite character in the book is Sadie. She's one of the two dogs that live in Fredle's house. She is ditsy and funny, and becomes a good friend to Fredle. I'll bet you love her too! Cynthia Voight's website
