Charles is as happy as a clam--and about as talkative as one. He positively trembles at the thought of meeting other children. Not even a chocolate surprise can get Charles to open up. When faced with a genuine emergency, this mousiest of mice proves that silent types are sometimes the biggest heroes of all. School Library Journal Best Book of the Year; Boston Globe/Horn Book Award for Excellence. Full color.
