Here is the story of a little mouse with a big talent! As the runt of his family, Wolfgang Amadeus Mouse (“Wolf,” for short) has a big name to make up for his small size. But the name fits: While his siblings like to race each other across the piano keys, he would rather listen to Mrs. Honeybee, the lady of the house, play music on them. Then one day, in a moment of musical passion, Wolf throws his head back—and to his total surprise, out of his mouth comes a beautiful voice! Soon he’s singing everything from “Three Blind Mice” to Chopin to the Beatles, all to Mrs. Honeybee’s accompaniment. But Wolf’s talents don’t end there—his voice really is music to Mrs. Honeybee’s ears when he uses it to rescue her after she takes a spill.
Dick King-Smith, beloved author of Babe: The Gallant Pig, is back with a warm, funny, fast-paced story about an unusual musical friendship that is perfect for newly independent readers.
Babe is a heroic pig with an unprejudiced heart. He spends his days watching Farmer Hoggett and Rex and Fly (world-class sheepdogs) teching their pups to be sheepdogs. Babe decides he wants to grow up to be a sheep-pig. This is the charming tale of what can happen when the underdog is an under-pig with an oversized heart.
