Book spotlight for Middle Grade Carousel September 2022: Reading Rodents features the book MOUSE by Jeff Stone

Little street urchin ShaoSu has always wanted to belong. His small size makes him an easy target for bullies and baddies and this little mouse always needs a place to hide. When he is befriended by Hok and Ying, he thinks he has found a new family, and eagerly tags along as they continue on their travels. What he doesn’ ‘t know is that his new friends are the most wanted criminals in China, and their adventures will land him in the middle of a battle not only for their lives, but for the future of China itself.
