Synopsis (From Goodreads)

Harry The Happy Mouse is a cheerful, traditional story about a Mouse called Harry who lives in the colorful English countryside. 

Harry helps a Frog, but asks the Frog to repay the kindness to someone else. We follow the good deed as it moves through other characters, who each selflessly help someone else, making themselves feel happy in the process! 

We learn that a little bit of happiness can go a long way! 

Harry The Happy Mouse is illustrated by the award winning Janelle Dimmett, bringing the beautiful story to life. 

Harry the Happy Mouse is 32 beautifully illustrated full colour pages.


My Review

I loved this book! It was beautifully illustrated throughout and very well written with the chapters all rhyming. It was a beautifully flowing book.

It is all about Harry who starts off doing a good deed for someone and then instead of wanting a reward asks that the frog pays the kind deed forward. This then continues as each recipient pays it forward. 


The book has a great moral tale for children to follow, showing that one good deed leads to another and you don't necessarily have to get something in return to feel good.  It is a great lesson for all children. 

I thoroughly recommend this book if you have children or grandchildren. It comes in Kindle form or paperback form.
