Mousemobile by Prudence Breitrose - OPTIONAL

Breitrose, Prudence Mousemobile, 282 pgs. Disney Hyperion Books, 2013. Language - G, Sexual Content - G; Violence - G; 

Megan is working for her uncle Fred this summer, trying to help mice save the planet. Mice everywhere have been working diligently in trying to cool down the earth, and they are receiving human support now that they've let Megan in on their secret. Unfortunately, Mouse Nation HQ is in danger--someone is sabotaging everything they're working so hard to accomplish. 

Some of the characters are very exaggerated, like caricatures, which gave the book a less-real feel. However, the whole concept is a little out there, so it's hard to justify being annoyed about the caricatured state of the characters. Maybe it feels more acceptable if the prequel is read first. Overall, though, it's a cute read despite its ridiculousness, and the illustrations are magnificent.
