This is a timeless book about a little mouse who encounters a windup mouse, but really is a lesson about loneliness, acceptance and will leave readers feeling optimistic. Very nice book to read at bedtime. Great book for small children but also for older children who might be going through a phase where they wish they were like someone else but haven't discovered yet that who they are might be even better. A must for every home library.
