About the book

In a final effort to save the dying Moorwood from the toads’ insidious bog rot, the Parliament of animal elders elect incredible Marten, the bravest and quickest of all the animals, to escape their woodland home, on a mission to plant Moorwood’s last three surviving acorns – but what happens when the hero fails? After a long winter, a very little and very hungry mouse named Montague comes upon the abandoned acorns in the dead woodland.

Montague Mouse is an emotional, magical story of dark corners, friendships, perseverance, self-doubt and above all hope.

Warning: This is a tale of misfortune, but even in misfortune fortune can be found.
