Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

A new story of friendship from Eve Bunting. Mouse lives alone on an island. At night he watches the lighthouse beacon flash across the water, warning ships to stay off the rocks. In the daytime, he dozes in the sun or searches for tasty sea morsels for dinner. Life is good. So why does he have a feeling that something is missing'something that would make it even better? One day a boat sinks near the island, and Mouse swims to the rescue of a strange, furry creature that has been tossed intothe ocean. What is it? What kind of dangerous creature has he saved? Eve Bunting's charming tale of an unlikely friendship is warmly illustrated by Dominic Catalano.

Horn Book Review

Mouse does love his island, but sometimes he wonders if there's something missing from his (mostly) contented life. One day an unexpected visitor washes ashore, leading to a surprising friendship that fills the hole in Mouse's world. Illustrations in grays, greens, and blues, sometimes stormy, sometimes placid, provide the backdrop for this tale of camaraderie. (c) Copyright 2010.
