Written by Peter Arenstam. Illustrated By Karen Busch Holman.
To Nicholas, a small field mouse from Massachusetts, family is everything! A lovely leather journal chronicles all the important events of Nicholas’s family history. When it is destroyed in a flood, Nicholas sets off on a journey in search of his uncle and a copy of the precious journal. He crosses the state of Massachusetts in Book One and his adventures take him on to Maine (Book Two) following a cousin who has taken the copy of the journal with him when he traveled down east.
Nicholas discovers just how large and diverse a state Maine is as he searches for his cousin Francis. Along the way, he’ll learn a great deal about the state—the animals that live there, the geography, industries, and even the state’s history. He’ll make many new friends and perhaps even bump into an old friend on his travels across the great state of Maine.
Book Two in a four-book series about Nicholas’s adventures in the Northeast.
