Anatole's Five All-Time Favorite Books about Mice (by Claudia)

As you know from my Happy Go Lucky picks in April, I share my life with a furry companion named Anatole. Anatole is not only a handsome and smart and compassionate and wise and most loving and and and ... cat; like his owner he appreciates books, especially the ones that tell a good mouse story. Celeste, Chrysanthemum, Frederick, Cookie mouse and Babymouse became treasured friends, and the cozy illustrations and humorous language make us purr with delight.

So let's daydream into the summer with Anatole’s mice friends.

A Nest for Celeste by Henry Cole (HarperCollins, $16.99)

Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes (William Morrow, $6.99)

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Joffe Numeroff (HarperCollins, $16.99)

Frederick by Leo Lionni (Random House, $6.99)

Babymouse by Jennifer L. Holmes and Matthew Holm (Random House, $5.95)
