The Little Mouse - A Dedication

For the longest time Helen's granddaughters, Evie and Iris, had been asking to read some of my work. This prompted me to dig into my collection of stories to find something that was suitable, and I came up with "The Little Mouse." In turn, the interest that this generated on social media was so overwhelming that it prompted me to look into getting it published, and the rest is history. It seemed only natural to show my gratitude by dedicating the book to these fine young ladies, because it was they who had got the ball rolling in the first place. Yesterday, when the paperback was released, Evie's nan showed her the dedication page. Apparently she was pleased because, using Helen's Facebook account, she sent me a photo, and this endearing message:

"This is Evie typing! i love the book and i love my name being in the book and now I'm famous!!!!!"


 Moments like this don't come along every day, but when they do they make it all worthwhile. You could ask Evie I suppose, but, what with her new found fame and all, I'm afraid you'll have to call and make an appointment. ;)

"From the creator of Charlie Smithers comes an endearing story, reminiscent of fairy tale classics of yesteryear. Filled with enchantment and meaning, this charming tale appeals to young and old alike, portraying how even the least among us can change the world."

The Little Mouse - A Classical Fairy Tale

"The Little Mouse" has often been described as a children's tale written along classical lines. Here are a few examples.

“It reminds me of the works of Hans Christian Anderson in its style.” ~ HPC.UK

“Superbly written and I would put this story up there with the greats of children's literature.” ~ tee gee

“The Little Mouse has a magic and charm that is rarely found and can only be likened to such well known classics as The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams, delighting readers for almost a hundred years, and one of my favourite books, Prince Caspian by CS Lewis.” ~ d.arcadian
