The Little Mouse Santi, written by David Eugene Ray and illustrated by Santiago Germano, is a recipient of a Moonbeam Award, the prestigious gold Mom’s Choice Award and has been named by Kirkus Reviews as one of the Best Books of 2015!
This beautifully illustrated story explores one of the most important aspects of a child’s life, the search for identity. Santi wants to be a cat, and even though all the other mice laugh at him, he follows his dream. This timeless story ends with a whimsical twist: Santi learns a valuable lesson about self-determination and also learns he is not the only dreamer!
