The Umbrella Mouse
This is a UK version, and there is some use of language in this version of the book that keep it from being widely recommended at RAR. It is, however, one of my own favorite reads! You can easily edit the language on the fly if you read it aloud.
FROM THE PUBLISHER:
1944, and London is under attack. Young mouse Pip Hanway's safe and quiet world is turned upside down when her home, umbrella shop James Smith & Sons, is destroyed by a bomb. Orphaned and alone, she must begin a perilous quest to find a new home.
But the only way to get there is by joining Noah’s Ark, a secret gang of animals fighting with the resistance in France, operating beneath the feet of the human soldiers. Danger is everywhere and as the enemy closes in, Pip must risk everything to save her new friends.
