Synopsis

GET READY TO EMBARK ON A TINY ADVENTURE!

“You mean you’re going to have a baby?” “Babies.” The Robinsons are expecting…trouble, that is. With six newborn mousekins and more to come, the whole family is terrified of the savage cat who stalks the hallways. After a close call, little Beaumont, the pluckiest of the lot, decides it’s time to find a new, feline-free home. On their quest, the Robinsons meet an unlikely cast of characters—mice and

humans, friends and foes—but wherever they go, they are sure to find one thing: adventure. With simple prose, gentle humor, and playful illustrations, MOUSE FAMILY ROBINSON is sure to satisfy new readers.
