"A rich, rollicking story about a plucky mouse with a dream."

~ Marlene M.


Written by Candace Hartzler, Theopatra More Than Just A Mouse is a delightful book sure to be a classic. Theopatra is a ram-bunk-shus mouse with a love for learning who befriends an owl named Harless. But uh-oh, don't owls EAT mice? Theopatra defies all odds. She works bravely through her fears and tears and becomes Harless's biggest support while becoming her best ballerina self. Together they learn about courage and trust. Whimsically illustrated in bright watercolors by Amanda Ingwersen, the characters will capture the hearts of children and adults alike
