When Kathie was three her birthday gift was a dollhouse. Its a story of “letting go” and the start of “growing up.” Help from her dad and two little mice bring surprises to the story and a small mystery is at hand, suitable for anyone to read. The mice are very smart, kind and understanding. The story is age appropriate for children 3 to 13 years old (younger or older), spanning whatever time-line your child or you find appropriate. It has an understandable “twist” at the end that lets the story all come together for a very “happy ending.” The author created the story and the illustrations making his story of Kathie’s Dollhouse realistic to the reader. Detailed illustrations relate to the storyline and allow a non-reader to follow along as the written words are spoken.
