REVIEWS:

PJ Mouse in Canada:  PJ Mouse’s adventure continues in a trip with Emily across Canada.  The family travels in a 5th wheel (and if you don’t know what that is, there is a picture of it to show you).  I’ve travelled extensively throughout Canada but PJ has done stuff that I haven’t even done – like climb a glacier!  He gets to visit Niagara Falls and learn French in Quebec.  What a smart little mouse!   There is a map of Canada in the back for you to follow along.
.
I’ve learned things about Canada that I never knew before.  The hand drawings are cute and fit the story perfectly.
.
PJ Mouse in Queensland:  PJ is off “down under” – that is Australia!  Along with his very own teeny suitcase and passport PJ is ready for more adventures.  Fortunately, his stuffing doesn’t get lumpy on the plane ride and he and Emily are off to Dreamworld for some rides and fun. They visit two important parts of Australia – the Great Barrier Reef and the rainforest where PJ meets a Lorikeet (I’ve seen Lorikeets in Australia – they’re sooo pretty!)
Read on to see more of PJ’s adventures with the loggerhead turtle.

These little books together with their companion PJ Mouse stuffed animal and little passport book with stickers make a wonderful gift.
