    1. A fun story of adventure, unusual mice, and pirates Great for kids in grades 3 who crave action and adventure

    2. This was hard to get through, at the beginning I didn t understand the concept of the world and it was really slow I didn t like the words the author used but in the end at least the story got interesting.

    3. The story itself was very creative conceptually, and I did appreciate such a large novel managed to still feel fast paced Howver, although I know this is geared towards a younger audience, I would still have expected better technical skill There was very little in the way of character building or scene setting, which made it difficult to really connect with the writing Also, there were also a few times where I had to re read a page because dialogue was klunky, awkward, or just hard to follow for [...]

    6. this has been an interesting read, i have especially enjoyed reading about the imaginative ways mice have evolved for various purposes I did get slightly overwhelmed at a certain point and paused reading it for a while but when I returned to it I read it quite quickly After discussing the book with some people and reflecting it came to me that the reason i am not enjoying it as much as i would have liked to is because of a lack of humoure characters within the book are all very serious and as th [...]

    8. While the story was cute and exciting by turns and the adult characters were rather well fleshed out, I was disturbed by the lack of foundation beneath all the kid characters in this book They are simply mousekeepers in the employ of the various adults in the book and you get no sense of their personal histories at all I think the young characters in a middle reader book should take center stage and that definitely wasn t the case here Much time was spent in the challenge of wills between Capta [...]

    9. This isn t a bad book I don t want to be one of those reviewers It s just when I picked this up at the library I was convinced that I was really gonna get something great I don t know if it s the cover, or the title, or what But, I was really hyped.And it s OK.Not great Not bad Not really even good.The premise is its strongest point, but the world and the characters aren t developed to the level where that matters Case in point, Emiline She s our heroine She s basically likeable, but we only ge [...]

    10. This started off with a strange premise, a bunch of magical mouse breeds and pirates who steal and collect them Then it got weirder Then it was just ridiculous.This was one of the few books I have given up on, in this case around the time they started talking about the ultra rare mouse that is illegal to own because its FUR IS PURE GOLD This makes no sense I would have let it go but then, in the world with traditional sailing ships and no electricity, in which, for heat, they burn dried mouse du [...]

    11. In a world where there are thousands of species of mice some useful, some scary, some very rare and precious , Emiline dreams of being a mousehunter and traveling the globe to find new and interesting mice When she s given the chance to join a privateer ship hunting for the dreaded pirate Mousebeard, she jumps at the chance and so begins her tale of adventure.An action packed story with an interesting premise, I only wish the character development and world building had matched the imaginative m [...]

    12. Basic premise of the book was very original, but Milway allowed that premise to carry too much of the book EVERY character was in some way wrapped up with hunting mice EVERY single person in the world was in some way a part of the mouse trade EVERYTHING was wrapped up with the mice As a result, characters often seemed to be a reflection of each other, and the storyline became a bit predictable The writing is fairly nicely done, though, and as this book clearly sets up another volume, or perhaps [...]

    13. I couldn t not read a mouse book with a lead character named Emiline Unfortunately Half the book or does not even focus on this title character of a much sought after genre, but instead revolves around a somewhat basic story involving middle aged men in very typical roles The author did make the effort to develop the characters a small amount and the world in which they live a little , but certainly not enough to make me bother finding the rest of the trilogy I suppose it IS a youth book, so I [...]

    14. Emiline is a mousekeeper for Isiah Locklove, the author of the famous Mousehunter s Almanac Though he is generally seen as an eccentric, but good citizen, Locklove has a sinister side that is unknown to all but a very few His latest scheme, to breed the rare Golden Mice, will take Emiline far from home and change everything she thought she knew about her employer and others.Written with a sequel firmly in mind, this is a fun tale with some plot twists and some interesting mice species not known [...]

    15. Unusual and adventurous with curses, pirates, twists and turns plotting, and spunky kid protagonist This is set in a world where mice are highly prized, trained, and traded Each chapter starts out with a page from a guidebook about the different kinds of mice sharpclaws, powder mice, elephant mice, dung mice, etc Neat idea This apprears to the first in a series although it could easily be read as a stand alone I had to get it by interlibrary loan so I m debating pursuing the series via ILL as we [...]

    16. An epic tale of pirates, mousehunting, giants, sea monsters, golden mice, hangings, stabbings, dung mice, elephant mice, nosferatu mice, messenger mice, moon howl mice, mice mice mice Despite my bias in favour of rodents, this was an excellent book It is suitably dark and spooky but silly at the same time It has steampunk elements, pirate elements, fantasy elements The whole package has a nice end, if a bit cliffhangery The second book, The Curse of Mousebeard, looks even fun.

    17. The book is call The Mousehunter and the author is Alex Milway Emiline was trying catcher the sharpclaw mouse but the sharpclaw mouse went to the mousedry and started cutting the cage where other mice were Keep.I like the book because in the book there was adventure in it and also some action.There are also lots to different mice in the story.If you like adventure and action book this is what you should read.I think is a very good book to read.

    18. A cute, whimsical story about Emiline, a mousekeeper for the wealthy mouse hunter Lovelock, who joins an expedition of privateers to seek the dreaded Mousebeard The illustrations are darling the assorted mice are charming unfortunately, there s really not much to the story other than the mice The story is predictable, and while overall it s a fun read, it doesn t leave much of an impression after it s set down I certainly don t feel compelled to read any further books in the series.

    19. Emeline is a mousekeeper, she must keep track of the many varieties of rare and distinct mouse breeds kept by her master When she hears of a possible adventure, she jumps at the chance to see the world Pirates, plots, really cool mice This book is action packed and with all the mouse facts seems somehow informative at the same time but it s not boring like that last sentence made it sound, really.

    20. I was very surprised that I enjoyed this book as much as I did As it started out as a world where mice have various talents, I was initially very skeptical that this book would last beyond a few chapters However, the book is very well written and I found myself drawn into this interesting world and wanting to see how it turned out I think that kids will like the inventive qualities of the different types of mice, and parents will enjoy the plot and the way it advances.

    21. Although rather long perhaps to keep most young readers attention this book will keep the reader coming back for The idea of a variety of very strange and some not so strange mice, a young girl, and boy,makes for a great adventure complete with pirates, dangers and friendships A great read for adults and young people alike I cannot wait to see what happens hopefully in the next adventure.

    22. This would have been a 5 star if it hadn t been for a handful of awkwardly worded sentences I loved this book Man s best friend is a mouse instead of a dog and the variety of breeds of mice and their uses was quite inventive There are also pirates, an adventure, and evil plot and heroes who try to save the day It was good fun from beginning to end

    23. Cute ideas in the book But like other reviews I feel the whole mouse thing was a little overboard I wasn t expecting this to be a series so when it ended with a possible next book I was a little sad The writing is great for the age group it s intended for, and I think it makes for a great read even if you aren t a kid Just wish the book was a little shorter.

    24. Great and entertaining readI read this with my son for a class assignment I have to say I looked forward to the daily reading It was a new and unique world to explore with great characters and plot Plus there be pirates

    25. This series could go either way it could improve and I would like it, or it could completely fall apart under the weight of its multitudinous mice It all depends on whether the author focuses on the human characters or the mouse characters.

    26. This was a great little book Written for kids but good for adults too I liked all the characters which were well written, and the pirating action was very good too I d recommend this book to fans of the Pirates In an adventure with books.

    27. This book is a cute story Any fan of high seas adventure whould love to read this book Also it got it share of rodents It interesting to learn about the difference type of mice, highy creative.
