A pair of toy mice go on a uest for a home pursued by an evil rat I read a blog post about this which made me want to read it and I thought it might be a good introduction to Hoban's adult books It's a melancholy book with lots of death and I know it would have been too dark for me as a child It's beautifully written and the helplessness and persistence of the mouse and his child give it the central effect of tenderness and wistfulness There's some nice humorous bits about absurdist crow theatre etc This did the epic journey genre really well for me; children's stories about toys are good like that looking back because you have to emphasise the characters' combination of helplessness with adventurousness and rely on happenstance to move them around It makes the world seem bigDefinitely the kind of children's book that adults wax lyrical about but isn't really for kids though

Don't be misled by this book's cover with its gentle picture of a windup toy mousehand in hand with his small son The Mouse and His Child is and isn't a children's book but it is not recommended for the soft hearted of any age The title characters a mouse and his child are toys who seem uite astonished to find themselves in the world moving from a toyshop to display items under a Christmas tree to uite suddenly the dump Despite his father's doubts despite the adversity of the world including the wicked Manny Rat the child holds onto and attempts to realize his dream of finding and making his toyshop companions a windup elephant and a windup seal his mother and sister and finding and making the toyshop's dolls' house his family home I'm making it sound much treacly than it is however There is hope and redemption in this story but there is also cruelty and death Like most good children's stories it can be read simply as a wonderful adventure if you are ten or as a sophisticated fantasy with clever dialogue and deep meaning if you are twenty I liked it so much that I went right back and read it again when I finished I would caution against reading by or with the most sensitive of readers
