Written in 1944 and a charmer! :-D

A fun read. We enjoyed it. Language a little hard for my 9-year old to grasp at times, but I explained things once in a while, and overall she liked it.

Love the book. It's perfect as a family read for younger children or a great read alone for older kids.

"New Folks coming, Mother-Father, new Folks coming into Big House!" shouted Little Georgie the Rabbit. All the animals of the Hill were very excited about the news and wondered how thingswould change. Would the new Folks bring dogs, traps, and guns? Or would they be planting Folks who would care for the land and grow rich crops? It had been years since there had been a garden at the House.

This is the most wonderful story about a bunch of animals who are hoping that a family of people that move in will be good providers. After an accident some of the animals think up a mean conspiracy about the people but in the end the truth is found.

Daughter liked it. Being the adult in this household it really struck me as a metaphor of WWII.

From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 3. Another King-Smith critter to love. Wolf is such a minuscule mouse that his mother decides to give him a big name. A slightly chewed piece of sheet music yields "Wolfgang Amadeus Mo"?hence W. A. Mouse or Wolf for short. The family mouse hole is just behind the leg of a grand piano played twice a day by an elderly woman. Wolf loves the music and, to the delight of Mrs. Honeybee and the bemusement of his mother, he becomes the first singing mouse. His special talent even enables him to summon help when Mrs. Honeybee falls and can't get up. The three central characters are nicely crafted in this sweet story. Budding young musicians will relate to Wolf's struggles to develop his talent and share it with his not-so-musical mother. Those who haven't discovered their talents will enjoy this small mouse as they have the other creatures King-Smith so lovingly creates. Goodell's black-and-white illustrations, done in an engaging style similar to the work of Garth Williams, have all the warmth of the text. An appealing beginning-chapter book for young readers ready for a bit of substance, and a surefire read-aloud.?
