The protagonist Frederick the mouse is a dreamer and an artist. He moves through the world with his head in the clouds, collecting items, ideas, and memories that he finds beautiful so he can recreate the same beauty and wonder for his mouse family. Under the pressure of an impending winter, Frederick’s dreaming frustrates his fellow mice while they work to collect food for the long months ahead. What use is a colorful leaf when the family needs food to survive? However, when the going gets tough, Frederick’s character role models how imagination, stories, and wonder can keep us all hopeful and connected.

Ideal for ages 2-9 and their families.
