ROCKET MOUSE by Lee Priestley

Email this review


It is no wonder that Midget, the rocket mouse, was the object of adulation of Fidget and Gidget. Equipped with home-made goggles, sand pail helmet, parasol parachute and the fiery spirit of a pioneer, Midget undergoes a series of grueling but hilarious tests, some designed by himself, others inside the pockets of missile men, all climaxing in his hazardous journey into space and back. Howls of delight are sure to greet each of these durance tests and the ingenious ways in which they are conceived and Midget is apt to become a memorable literary animal.
