Summary: Beatrice, The Secret Mission is a fresh take for contemporary children's literature. An unusual blend of chapter book and storybook for young readers, it tells a funny, compelling yet innocent story usually found only in the classics. Every parent or grandparent will love its life lessons and savor its delightfully rich language when reading aloud. Young readers are hooked by the characters and story and can hardly wait to get to the next chapter. They easily tune into this impetuous, bossy and
thoroughly endearing young mouse who gets herself into one scrape after another as she tries to forge a friendship between sworn enemies: Consuela, a jealous, snooty parrot, and Jasper, a dog with a sad tale, rootbeer brown eyes, and a gentle soul. The story has at its heart a challenging odyssey that tests the three as they duck detection by humans, a villainous cat, bloodthirsty rats and a gang of dangerous geese. As with all odysseys, what they went for wasn't necessarily what they found. They did learn, however, about friendship, courage, teamwork, tolerance, honesty, perseverance, humor, and even good manners!BOOK REVIEWBEATRICE is a charming, captivating and instructive adventure story for elementary school children seeking a book that looks up to them not down on them.Reviewed by Dr.Roland S.BarthFormer Public Elementary School PrincipalProfessor Emeritus, Harvard Graduate School of EducationContact information: rsb44@ao1.com
