My Son Guest Posts on WORD OF MOUSE by James Patterson (plus giveaway!)

I am partnering with Jimmy Patterson books to showcase his latest mid grade level novel, “Word of Mouse” that released December 12.

Hi I am Isaac, I am 10 years old and I am in 5th grade.  One of the coolest things about my mom’s job is she will get sent books for me to read before they are even released (and we always have lots of painter’s tape laying around).  This month we got sent the new book, “Word of Mouse” by James Patterson.  It is about a mouse named Isaiah (I like that name because it is close to Isaac) who gets separated from his family.  The whole book is about the lessons he learned as he goes through adventures to be reunited with his family.  Each chapter there is a quote.  The quote I picked out is “God gave us acorns but He does not crack them open for us.”  It made me think of all the good things in my life that I have to be grateful for. 


The top of my list is my family, followed by my humor as a close second.  My name is Isaac, which means laughter.  I love to laugh.


I really like this book and I think your boy or girl would like it to.  You can order it now on Amazon and wrap it up and put it under the tree from Santa…ahem.  HAHA!



James Patterson’s newest illustrated middle grade story follows the illuminating journey of a very special mouse, and the unexpected friendships that he makes along the way.

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 use his special skills 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.
