Book Review: The Mice of Bistrot des Sept Frères by Marie Letourneau

OK confession time...when I first joined *Netgalley I was request happy. I mean I'd request anything and everything. Fast forward to the present...well now I know the consequences of my actions because I had a 3% feedback rating. But over the last few months I've brought it up to over 35% and am working on raising it higher. This book is one of the few still on there that have not been archived or deleted. So finally after over three years of not reading or reviewing it I finally got around to reading it.

The book tells the tale of mice Chef Marcel and his 7 mice sons and his petite mouse daughter.  Chef Marcel makes the best cheese soup in all of France. But one day just before he is to be judged on his soup he runs of the secret ingredient that only he knows. Panic ensues and Chef Marcel leaves it to his sons to start making the soup while he runs to find the secret ingredient. Everyone is in a panic except for his sweet petite daughter who is nothing but calm. Will Chef Marcel return in time to finish making his famous soup?

When I first requested this book (way back when) I had intended to read it to my son. But when I looked at it back then I knew it was still too advanced for him. Back then he could only handle books with one line per page. But I was delighted when I went back to read this that it was perfect for him now. My son loved this book. His favorite parts were when the mice would bump into each other causing food to fly everywhere.

The drawings were so perfect. Soft colors and gorgeous to look at scenes. This will definitely be read again in this house.

5 out of 5 stars!

*I received a free copy of this ebook from Netgalley in exchange for my honest opinion
**This book was read with my special needs son who is severely learning disabled. The review reflects not only my opinion but his as well
