A funny story, full of the adventures and troubles of Carlo the mouse, who lives a simple life in a Florida hospital but always dreams of greater things. In this vibrant picture book, a daring mouse takes center stage in an adventure even bigger than his appetite. Carlo has never been outside the four walls of his home and he has one unfulfilled wish--a vacation. In a twist of fate, he unexpectedly finds himself embarking on his adventures and misadventures by accidentally landing inside an open car trunk, catching the wrong bus, and boarding an airplane that takes him halfway around the world to Paris. The shrewd Carlo finds a way to survive the most unusual situations while dodging--or causing--mayhem along the way, touching readers' hearts and making them laugh.

I bought this book for my nieces and nephews. While reading this book together we had fun and the most quality time we have had in a while. The book was very funny, entertaining and engaging, as well as easy to read. The children easily relate to the main character CARLO, who grabbed their attention from the beginning and held it to the end of the book and had great illustrations bursting with color. As an adult I had as much fun as the children had. The book was also educational teaching children of self acceptance. I would recommend this book for children as well as adults to read to their kids. I can't wait until the next book comes out.
