From the beloved author of Mister Cassowary, Smooch & Rose and Spud & Charli comes another thrilling adventure about Australia’s native animals.
Mouse by name, mouse by nature.
Mouse is not prepared for her last-minute stay at Aunt Evie’s. How will she cope at a new school without her parents around?
But before Mouse has even unpacked her suitcase, she makes a new friend – a wombat called Miss Pearl!
Suddenly, being in a strange cottage doesn’t seem so bad, especially when she can snuggle up with a wombat.
Mouse soon learns that not everyone in the area loves wombats, including Aunt Evie’s landlord, a sheep farmer who destroys them on sight.
Can Mouse find her voice in time to keep her furry friends safe?
