What's Young Fredle About

Publisher Summary

Cynthia Voigt crafts a novel about discovery, perspective, and the meaning of home–all through the eyes of an affable and worried little mouse. Fredle is an earnest young fellow suddenly cast out of his cozy home behind the kitchen cabinets–into the outside. It’s a new world of color and texture and grass and sky. But with all that comes snakes and rain and lawnmowers and raccoons and a different sort of mouse (field mice, they’re called) not entirely trustworthy. Do the dangers outweigh the thrill of discovery? Fredle’s quest to get back inside soon becomes a wild adventure of predators and allies, of color and sound, of discovery and nostalgia. And, as Fredle himself will come to understand, of freedom.
