Fierce Grey Mouse

ABOUT THE BOOK

The enchanting story of a Little Grey Mouse who desperately wants to be fearsome and strong. He does his exercises, eats his porridge, drinks all of his milk – and, soon enough, Little Grey Mouse grows to be fierce.

But, roaring and pouncing from his perch high up in a tree, Fierce Grey Mouse accidentally scares away all of his friends .

Fierce Grey Mouse soon realises the importance of friendship and being true to yourself: the message of the story.

Beautifully written and illustrated by the highly-regarded children’s illustrator Chantal Bourgonje, this book is a delight that young children and their families can share and enjoy.

Review written by Jon Patch with 3.5 out of 4 paws

Love, Simon

Twentieth Century, Fox 2000 Pictures, New Leaf Literary & Media and Temple Hill Entertainment present a 109 minute, PG-13, Comedy, Romance, Drama, directed by Greg Berlanti, written by Elizabeth Berger and Isaac Aptaker with a theatre release date of March 16, 2018.

This is a book about animals on what can be considered a small farm, the title character is the runt of a group of fourteen newly acquired chicks. On this farm, the animals are considered to be part of the family and all of them have their own names. The attitudes of the chickens are developed with this in mind,,although they have distinct personalities. Once the chicks are large enough to be safer from predators, they are allowed to roam freely, at this time “Bodo,” a Hungarian bird dog, takes over as their protector. There are also horses on this farm and they easily converse with the chickens. The horses are valuable show horse’s and some have traveled all the way to Europe to compete. When they are told that the horses wear blankets and other fashion accessories, the chickens are jealous and express a desire to also be dressed up. The entire farm is presented as a happy family, where all of the animals communicate with each other, yet the humans appear to be oblivious to this. That does not diminish this excellent story about animals of different species that form a society. The story is filled with life lesson’s such as sharing, trust, friendships , love, being yourself and proud of it and simple life pleasures such as splashing in puddles .

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Whimsical Farm Animals Form Lasting Friendships In A Runtamuffin Tale
West Palm Beach, FL ― Life’s a real zoo at Legacy Farms, where 14 chickens, a couple of dogs and an assortment of horses with diverse temperaments learn to share their days on the sprawling homestead.
Based on the true life adventures of author Melissa Taylor’s charming chickens, A Runtamuffin Tale is a delightful new children’s book that follows the life of Runtamuffin — or Runti — a tiny chicken with a big personality. Runti becomes the first chicken brave enough to form a bond with one of the farm’s largest inhabitants — a beautiful horse named Mariett.
All the animals on the farm soon learn that differences in size and outward appearances don’t mean a thing in this colorful tale that subtly interweaves valuable life lessons on sharing, believing in yourself, love, friendship, anti-bullying and mutual respect.
The 57-page book, wonderfully illustrated by Marc Beauregard, targets children ages 6 to 12 and would make a treasured addition to any family’s home or elementary school library.
Author Melissa Taylor was born and raised in the small town of Nazareth, Pennsylvania. Melissa’s mom filled her childhood home with animals, which cultivated Melissa’s love and desire to surround herself with all types of four- and two-legged creatures. She currently lives, owns and runs a farm with her husband in South Florida with 14 chickens, 34 horses, 5 dogs and a cockatiel.
