Tales of Mr. Snuggywhiskers: The Summer Tales by C.F. Crawford is the 4th book in a series of reading adventures for kids. It follows an engaging talking mouse and his large, vivacious family of ten children as they team up with two human sisters, Hallie (age 8) and Cory (age 6), to reunite the girls' mother with a long-lost talking mouse, Mr. Snuggywhiskers’ father. But how can they find the elusive Cap’n Snuggywhiskers if they can’t leave home? When a visit to their mother’s old college gives the girls the chance they’re looking for, they get on the Cap’n’s trail at last.

C.F. Crawford tells a lovely story of reunion, friendship, and daily adventure. A modern day companion to children's classics like The Wind in the Willows, Tales of Mr. Snuggywhiskers offers a great mix of relationships, ingenuity, and a little science all at the same time. Along the way they magically shrink in and out of mouse size; become living science experiments; and have a great deal of fun. The curiosity and inventiveness of the gaggle of Snuggywhiskers kids and their friends, the Squirrel family, echo that of children, for whom an ordinary day is loaded with creativity. Their journey finding the long-lost Cap'n is just up the alley of young readers, and the wholesome, pleasant story makes this a solid children’s book. Populated with a delightful cast and an idyllic world for kids to explore, Tales of Mr. Snuggywhiskers: The Summer Tales is something parents will love to give their kids--and won't mind reading with them too.
