Word of Mouse by James Patterson, Joe Sutphin, Chris Grabenstein

This is a sweet and funny illustrated story about growing up, accepting others and finding home. Isaiah is a special mouse, he is special because he is from a laboratory. As a result of this laboratory Isaiah knows how to read and write, but the scientists do not know this yet. Isaiah is not only different from this, he also looks different from regular mice. This is because he is blue. Every mouse in his hundred mouse clan has their own personality and Isaiah is known as the coward. But when his family plans an escape from the laboratory he gets lost from the rest of them and he soon discovers that he is the only one to successfully escape. This is the first time that Isaiah has been out in the real world and now he discovers the power of friendship and family. Through Isaiah not only looking different but also thinking differently, Isaiah is calling on all the readers to learn to be accepting towards others that are different. This is a sweet coming of age story that is good for elementary school students. It reminds me of a different version of The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo.
