Mouse Woman liked everyone and everything to be proper. To her, anyone who couldn’t see that the proper way to do things was the only way to do things, was a Muddlehead. And she had little patience with Muddleheads. In fact, because she was the busiest, little busybody in the Place-of-Supernatural-Beings, she often did something about the Muddleheads.

Mouse Woman, the tiny grandmother narnauk is back in yet another series of fun-filled adventures. There are muddleheads causing problems in the Place-of-Supernatural-Beings, and Mouse Woman intends to do something about it. Foolish sea-hunters and arrogant chiefs are quickly headed towards disaster as they upset the more powerful Narnauks and only Mouse Woman cares to stop them. But will they take her advice? Or will they become even more muddleheaded than they already were?

Once again, Christie Harris delivers a wonderful novel, filled with enchanting tales about Mouse Woman, tiniest of tiny grandmothers. With wit and charm, the stories unfold, each more delightful than the last. I enjoyed Muddleheads as much as the other two stories in the series, it was simply wonderful and charming to read.

Mouse Woman and the Muddleheads* is the third book in the acclaimed Mouse Woman series. Mouse Woman and the Mischief-Makers is the first story and Mouse Woman and the Vanished Princesses the second.  I would recommend the Mouse Woman books for children ages 10 to 14 for personal reading and I recommend parents reading the books to their children, ages 8 and up!

I’d give Mouse Woman and the Muddleheads five stars out of five.
