The BookViral Review:

A beautifully written and charming book for early readers, ‘Mice Make the Best Friends’ is a story in verse about empathy, friendship, and loyalty. Following on from her first offering ‘Oh no Joe’, L.L Wolfe continues with her theme; the relationship between animals and their humans.

This time, Tilly, a kind Grandmother coaxes Violet, a needy but stubborn little mouse in from the outside as the weather begins to turn cold. What follows is a heartwarming tale as Tilly and Violet become firm friends. However, life is full of twists and turns and Tilly is faced with a quandary as she is invited to go and live with her extended family. What will become of their new-found friendship?

Complemented nicely by gently drawn illustrations in pastel, Wolfe’s rhyming delivery is soft and soothing, both in content and delivery. The lilting prose creates a cosy atmosphere, wonderful for quiet time and bedtime reading.

Nevertheless, Wolfe does not shy away from ambitious vocabulary, but rather uses challenging words in context within her narrative, allowing young readers to build their own internal glossary. Including a healthy amount of content in her storyline also encourages young ones to become readers rather than just observers; the verse encourages memory retention, which in turn supports recognition of letter and word patterns.

Furthermore, ‘Mice make the best Friends’ is a story that teaches the best of human qualities, such as compassion and empathy, and how to remain loyal within relationships, qualities that can be transferred easily to the life of the reader, whether these be with their own pets, their siblings, or their friends.

For centuries, writers have used parables and stories to teach valuable lessons; Wolfe continues this beneficial and constructive practice in this lovely tale, creating a perfect vehicle from which parents, carers and educators can teach their young charges.

A heartwarming 5-star read, ‘Mice Make the best Friends’ is unreservedly recommended.
