Even when you're lost in a storm, you can find home again.

The wind is your voice.
You whisper to me.
A young girl feels lost after the death of her mother. Dad tries his best to manage everything alone, but things just aren't the same. When they take a trip to their lake house, the girl longs to feel a connection to her mom, and so she takes out the small mouseboat that she and her mom built together. And somehow, in the wind and the rain, protected by the mouseboat, she finds her mother's love.
A lyrical, soothing story about new beginnings, even in the darkest times, Mouseboat is a powerful tribute to finding your way home again.
Larissa Theule holds an MFA from the Vermont College of Fine Arts and is the author of the picture books Kafka and the Doll, Born to Ride: A Story About Bicycle Face, and A Way with Wild Things. She lives in Pasadena, California.
