Young Geraldine longs to have adventures as thrilling as those in the Book of Tales, the book her papa reads to her and her brother Button at night. More than that, she wants to be brave—a seemingly impossible task in a world where ravens throw black shadows over the earth and wolves prowl barren lands in search of their prey. But Geraldine is a mouse. The weakest of ground things. Why was she, who wants so much to be brave, created by God to be small and quivering?
The book’s ten stories follow the Woolkins family—Papa, Mama, Geraldine, and Button—from October to December, as they face their rather human trials and tribulations and Geraldine struggles to understand Very Very Big Hands, the creator of all, including ravens and wolves.Learn more...
As a new mouse, Geraldine still struggles to be brave and good. And at night, when the Woolkins family gathers to listen to Papa read stories from the Book of Tales, she still tries to understand Very Very Big Hands, the creator of all—including the dreaded wolves of the Barren Land.
But will she ever stop longing to fly like a bird or to stride above the grasses like a fox? Will she learn to be thankful for the ground thing she was made to be? Ten more stories follow the Woolkins mouse family—Papa, Mama, Geraldine, and Button—from January, a time of scarcity, to March, with its first whispers of spring.Learn more...
