Violet & Jobie in the wild / by Lynne Rae Perkins.

Perkins, Lynne Rae, (author,, illustrator.).


"Brother and sister mice Violet and Jobie live a cozy and comfortable life in a humans' house, where food is plentiful and the television is good. In fact, Violet, tucked safely behind a book in the bookcase, loves to watch nature programs along with the young boy of the family. The boy's mother, however, isn't the biggest fan of mice. When Violet and Jobie are caught in a trap, the young boy pleads with his mother to release them, and she agrees. Now Violet and Jobie find themselves in tall grasses, under tall trees, surrounded by all kinds of unfamiliar scents and sounds and creatures. In short, they find themselves in the wild. How will they survive? This short, generously illustrated novel is packed with action, humor, heart, friendship, and surprises. Award-winning author Lynne Rae Perkins's Violet & Jobie in the Wild will resonate with readers who love books about animals."-- Amazon
