The Travel Adventures of PJ Mouse #1 & #2 written by Gwyneth Jane Page and Illustrated by Megan Elizabeth
About the Books
PJ Mouse, an adorable little stuffed animal, was lost and alone until young Emily heard his cries for help.
Now, along with his new family, PJ gets to travel the world - discovering exciting new places, people, and animals along the way!
Meet the author and illustrator:
Gwyneth Jane Page (Jane), who holds an MBA from Simon Fraser University, has called many countries home. She grew up in such places as England, Peru, the USA, and the Caribbean, and has also lived in Australia and Canada. She now resides in Victoria, BC with her husband and four children. The PJ Mouse books are based on Jane's family trips with the real stuffed animal, PJ, who was found by Emily, Jane's youngest daughter.
Megan Elizabeth, Jane's second oldest daughter, has lived in Canada and Australia and travelled extensively with her family-and PJ. Having been artistic since she was a little girl, illustrating the PJ Mouse books has enabled her to combine her love of travel with her love of art. Megan completed her studies at VanArts and is now building her career as a professional photographer as well as an illustrator. She currently resides in Victoria, BC with her family.
The first story in the PJ Mouse series is The Adventure of PJ Mouse in Canada. This is a wonderful beginning to a great series that kids will immediately fall in love with. With new endeavors in each chapter, elementary readers will greatly anticipate what will happen next in the story. This book is filled with fun characters and a entertaining storyline, as well as pictures that improve the story. I would recommend this book to elementary readers.
Book rating: 5 stars
The Adventures of PJ Mouse in Queensland, book two in the PJ Mouse series, is a fantastic continuation of book one, The Adventures of PJ Mouse in Canada and fun adventure for kids. From page one beginning readers will love the exciting story of the first adventure of PJ the mouse. Each chapter is filled with a fun venture with PJ, with the pictures throughout the book enhancing the storyline as well. I would recommend this book to elementary readers.

Interview with Author Sonja Anderson
Sophie's Quest by Sonja Anderson Middle Grade Adventure Paperbook & ebook, 2260 Pages June 7th 2015 by Sunberry BooksSophie Topfeather loves to collect people-things with which to decorate her life and home. When she finds a golden necklace, she is intrigued by its shape and shows it to her grandfather, the Great Wise Horned Owl of the Park. His reaction only stirs her interest even more; he calls it a holy symbol, and then a ‘t’ for ‘trouble’! All of which sets our young owl off on a Quest to learn its true meaning. Little does she know that a day-dreaming, over-protected, adventure-seeking Pirate – er, mouse – named Timley has leapt into the brim of her hat as Sophie flies off on her Quest! And suddenly, their adventure takes its own turn as they find themselves on board a ship bound for the Holy Land. Thorns and thistles! Has the trouble started already? Can Timley convince Sophie she should not—I repeat, NOT—eat him? This is also the story of the mysterious Sky Painter, who seems to be with them—no, leading them—on their Quest. So, why is he always leading them straight into trouble? Was the Great Wise Horned Owl right all along? Come along on the Quest to find out! Cross oceans with Sophie and Timley to a land of mosques and synagogues, markets and Bedouin tents, and, like our unlikely friends, you may never be the same again!
