This tale has all the ingredients of a rewarding read: suspended reality (a bright blue mouse whose tap-dance keyboard messages forge a human-friend bond), heart-pounding adventure (of his 90+ siblings who escaped their lab-captors, Isaiah-the-bright-blue-mouse narrowly escapes recapture and plans a risky rescue), and rich vocabulary (urbane, dulcet, cowlicky, and so much more!). Every chapter begins with an original proverb that both foreshadows and empowers: A mouse of words and not of deeds is like a garden full of weeds; A mouse's best teacher is his last mistake; Hope is putting faith to work when giving up would be easier. The authors clearly understand the pulse (and needs) of middle grade readers and have masterfully blended noble themes with entertainment.
Publisher Summary
A very special mouse escapes from a lab to find his missing family in this charming story of survival, determination, and the power of friendship.

What makes Isaiah so unique? First, his fur is as blue as the sky -- which until recently was something he'd never seen, but had read all about. That's right: Isaiah can read and write. He can also talk to humans . . . if any of them are willing to listen!

After a dramatic escape from a mysterious laboratory, Isaiah is separated from his mischief (which is the word for a mouse family) and has to survive in the dangerous outdoors, and hopefully find his missing family. But in a world of cruel cats, hungry owls, and terrified people, it's hard for a young, lone mouse to make it alone. When he meets an equally unusual and lonely human girl named Hailey, the two soon learn that true friendship can transcend all barriers.
