The Schoolmouse

Flora was born on the first day of term in the new school year, which might be why she’s a very special mouse indeed – a mouse who has taught herself to read!

Flora lives in a classroom, and is determined to learn all sorts of things that no mouse has ever learned before. Her family is horrified at first, but then Flora’s reading saves their lives.

This charming story about an extraordinary little mouse is read by Rosemary Leach. Listen to a sample below:
