The story of a young mouse who runs away from home to study the balalaika. His return to restore the family fortunes may be a predictable theme, but it is one that is, nevertheless, reassuring. Not one of John Burningham's most popular books but it is quietly enjoyed by my infants, both when read aloud to the class and when looked at or read solo by the children.
