This week, More than a mouse, is being featured on the Australian Christian Readers Blog Alliance. Information about the author and more details about the book can be found here.

More than a mouse is a fun story for primary school children. It is another story with Tania Abbey as the main character. Tania is an ordinary girl living an ordinary life and therefore easy for children to identity with, yet she also seeks to live out her Christian beliefs. It is mostly a down to earth story with every day people and real life situations. The story encourages children to trust God.

However one element in this story did concern me a little. Fictitious stories of significant healings are a bit too convenient. God does answer prayer and heal but there are also times when he does not. This possibility was not fully examined. For this reason I feel the story would have been better if Tania’s brother had not been quite so badly injured.

Apart from this minor criticism, it is a good story and well worth a read.

Thanks to Penny Reeve for providing a free book for review.
