Word of Mouse Lib/E
DescriptionJames Patterson's newest middle grade story follows the illuminating journey of a very special mouse, and the unexpected friendships that he makes along the way. What makes Isaiah so unique? First, his fur is as blue as the sky--which until recently was something he'd never seen, but had read all about. That's right--Isaiah can read, and write. He can also talk to humans...if any of them are willing to listen! After a dramatic escape from a mysterious laboratory, Isaiah is separated from his mischief (which is the word for a mouse family), and has to use his special skills to survive in the dangerous outdoors, and hopefully find his missing family. But in a world of cruel cats, hungry owls, and terrified people, it's hard for a young, lone mouse to make it alone. When he meets an equally unusual and lonely human girl named Hailey, the two soon learn that true friendship can transcend all barriers.

About the Author
Nate Begle is a voice talent and audiobook narrator.
Narrator Nate Begle does authors Patterson and Grabenstein proud. He infuses their hero, an escaped blue lab rat named Isaiah, with an exuberant, inquisitive, and persistent personality-surely what the authors had in mind...Isaiah's love of words and ability to talk, type, and orate are sure to win over listeners. Equally charming is Hailey, a human Isaiah befriends. Supporting characters have distinctive voices as well-especially the brown non-lab mouse, Mikayla, and the bumbling caretaker of the lab, Mr. Brophy.-- "AudioFile"
