Geraldine, The Music Mouse




A beloved Lionni mouse discovers the magic of music.

As Geraldine, a little mouse, begins nibbling at a huge hunk of Parmesan cheese, she uncovers a big cheese statue of a mouse playing what seems to be a flute but on closer inspection is really its tail. That night Geraldine is woken by silver and gold sounds. “This must be music!” she says. And every night the cheese mouse fills Geraldine’s hideaway with beautiful music. Then one day her hungry mice friends ask her to share her cheese with them. How Geraldine’s new love of music enfuses her with a magic of her own provides a satisfying conclusion to this delightful tale. Called by The Horn Book Magazine “a worthy successor to Frederick,” this is the first time this fable of friendship and sharing has appeared in paperback.
