From the Publisher:
Celeste is a mouse who is looking for a home, but it's not beneath the dusty floorboards; in the toe of a worn boot; in the dollhouse in the attic, complete with mouse-size furniture; or nestled in Joseph's pocket; Celeste discovers that home is really the place deep inside her heart, where friendships live.Celeste, a mouse longing for a real home, becomes a source of inspiration to teenaged Joseph, assistant to the artist and naturalist John James Audubon, at a New Orleans, Louisiana, plantation in 1821.
Annotation:
The adventures of a timid mouse named Celeste and the famous naturalist John James Audubon combine in this excellent story. Set during the time Audubon was collecting specimens on a Louisiana plantation in 1821, this beautifully illustrated story follows Celeste as she searches for a true home. Gifted at weaving tiny baskets, Celeste is on the run from overbearing rats and a frightening cat when she's taken in by Audubon's assistant, young Joseph. With him, Celeste finds friendship, new experiences, and explores the world. Accompanied by expressive B&W illustrations.
