Imp’s Adventures: The Secret Tunnel by Mary Pat Kanaley is the first book in an adorable series that will teach children an important lesson in apologizing and also teach them how to draw a mouse. Imp has a dream: to go to school just like his big sister. Unhappy that his parents won’t let him go, he throws a tantrum that gets him sent to his room. But his time in his room leads to an unexpected discovery that will change everything for this little mouse. He discovers a secret tunnel that leads him to a classroom full of children. He finds it just in time to overhear important lessons that teach Imp how to draw a mouse and how to apologize, both of which encourage him to make amends with his family for his bad behavior.
The story is told through lovely, detailed illustrations that bring Imp’s adventure to life. Imp starts the story happy but everything changes when his big sister goes to school and his parents refuse to let him go too. The illustrations depict the fun he has with his sister and then the details of his facial expressions show how upset he is as he begs his mom and the anger he feels when he’s told no. The illustrations have adorable little details that include cheese shaped like a cake and fully capture his mouse world. Mary Pat Kanaley captures the tantrum that finds him refusing any kisses, purposefully making a mess, and even pulling faces in the mirror instead of brushing his teeth. The Secret Tunnel introduces children to little Imp in an adventure that will teach them an important lesson in behavior and apologizing while also showing them a fun how-to lesson in drawing a mouse.
