About The Book

Sophie Mouse wishes she could play in the water at Forget-Me-Not Lake with her friends, but she can’t because she’s a mouse. Or can she? Find out in this third book of The Adventures of Sophie Mouse.

Sophie Mouse likes being a mouse. So she’s excited that she and her classmates are making presentations for school about life as the type of animal they are. Sophie has already made a list of things she can do—run fast, scurry into small places, and more. But while playing at Forget-Me-Not Lake with her friends Hattie Frog and Owen Snake, Sophie realizes one thing she definitely can’t do: swim!

Hattie and Owen are having so much fun in the water, and Sophie will never be able to join them. Sophie starts to think that being a mouse isn’t so special, after all. When Sophie’s friends notice her disappointment, can they figure out a way to get her out on the water?

With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, the Adventures of Sophie Mouse chapter books are perfect for beginning readers.

About The Author

Poppy Green can talk to animals! Unfortunately, they never talk back to her. So she started writing in order to imagine what they might say and do when humans aren’t watching. Poppy lives on the edge of the woods in Connecticut, where her backyard is often a playground for all kinds of wildlife: birds, rabbits, squirrels, voles, skunks, deer, and the occasional wild turkey.
