Young Fredle

In Young Fredle, by Cynthia Voigt, a young mouse named Fredle has been pushed out of his pantry home in the house kitchen and brought outside by a human. Once outside, he has to figure out a way to get back inside. Fredle goes on many adventures and learns a lot of new words he did not even know existed like porch, barn and snake. Outside, he finds out about good things like the compost pile that is a constant food supply, the bright stars and the wonderful flowers. There are also dangerous and scary things outside like snakes, raccoons, foxes and more cats! Fredle also visits the house cellar where he finds nice mice with an always filled food basket. So now that Fredle has seen the inside and outside worlds and the house cellar, and has friends in all of these locations, where will he choose to live?

I would recommend this book to any animal lover between the ages of 9-11. The story itself is not overly complicated and the vocabulary is fairly simple. This book was funny, entertaining and will keep you reading!
