From the Inside Flap:

story of a little mouse with a big talent! As the runt of his family, Wolfgang Amadeus Mouse ("Wolf," for short) has a big name to make up for his small size. But the name fits: While his siblings like to race each other across the piano keys, he would rather listen to Mrs. Honeybee, the lady of the house, play music on them. Then one day, in a moment of musical passion, Wolf throws his head back--and to his total surprise, out of his mouth comes a beautiful voice! Soon he's singing everything from "Three Blind Mice" to Chopin to the Beatles, all to Mrs. Honeybee's accompaniment. But Wolf's talents don't end there--his voice really is music to Mrs. Honeybee's ears when he uses it to rescue her after she takes a spill. Dick King-Smith, beloved author of Babe: The Gallant Pig, is back with a warm, funny, fast-paced story about an unusual musical friendship that is perfect for newly independent readers.

From the Back Cover:

"A sunny story, made even more cheerful by Jon Goodell's exquisite black-and-white animal pictures...It succeeds because of its determined main character, its gentle wit, and its positive message."--Booklist

"Another King-Smith critter to love...an appealing beginning-chapter book for youg readers ready for a bit of substance, and a surefire read-aloud."--School Library Journal

"Written in King-Smith's characteristically well-upholstered prose."--Publishers Weekly

"A charming animal fantasy."--Instructor

Book Description Turtleback Books, United States, 1999. Hardback. Condition: New. Jon Goodell (illustrator). Turtleback School Library ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Another King-Smith critter to love. Wolf is such a minuscule mouse that his mother decides to give him a big name. A slightly chewed piece of sheet music yields Wolfgang Amadeus Mo -- hence W. A. Mouse or Wolf for short. The family mouse hole is just behind the leg of a grand piano played twice a day by an elderly woman. Wolf loves the music and, to the delight of Mrs. Honeybee and the bemusement of his mother, he becomes the first singing mouse. His special talent even enables him to summon help when Mrs. Honeybee falls and can t get up. The three central characters are nicely crafted in this sweet story. Budding young musicians will relate Woolf s struggles to develop his talent and share it with his not-so-musical mother. Those who haven t discovered their talents will enjoy this small mouse as they have the other creatures King-Smith so lovingly creates. Goodell s black-and-white illustrations, done in an engaging style similar to the work of Garth Williams, have all the warmth of the text. An appealing beginning-chapter book for young readers ready for a bit of substance, and a surefire read-aloud. Seller Inventory # AAC9780613170581
