The Adventures of Henry the Field Mouse books revolve around Henry, an amiable field mouse who befriends a family of mice and embarks on a series of escapades exploring the English countryside. While not intentionally educational, 3 to 7-year-olds will learn a little about the appearance and habitats of different animals and see how they can all be friends, even though they don’t look the same. The realistic illustrations will spark the imagination of young readers as in each chapter Henry and his pals encounter climbing, swimming and burrowing friends.

Sue Dockstader is the editor and publisher of this series, written for her kids by her mother when she moved to Hong Kong.
