About the Book
Tania Abbey is so excited. She’s waited and waited and it’s finally her turn to bring Pepperoni, the class mouse, home for a week. But her mum isn’t convinced – not with Gran coming to stay - and when Tania’s brother Daniel is involved in a serious accident, the little black and white mouse doesn’t seem quite so important after all. Unimportant, that is, until one night Pepperoni decides to escape...

About the Author
Penny Reeve grew up as the child of missionary parents in a variety of cross cultural settings. She then went to university, got married and served for several years herself in PNG and Nepal.
She now lives with her family in Western Sydney and is the author of 11 children’s books including the very popular Find the Animal series for young children and the social-justice themed Tania Abbey novels.

My Thoughts
What a great story. I wish I had a copy (other than the PDF) so that I could lend it to some of the children I know. So many lessons packed in one small book.
I really want to read more of Penny's books. Hopefully one day I can share them with my children (when I finally get married and have them).
