Written By Peter Arenstam. Illustrated By Karen Busch Holman.
To a small field mouse from Massachusetts, family is everything! A lovely leather journal chronicles all the important events of his family’s history. When the journal is destroyed in a flood, Nicholas will set off across the state of Massachusetts in search of his uncle and a copy of the precious book. Along the way, he’ll meet many friends and explore the many diverse areas that make up Massachusetts—the Berkshire Mountains, Quabbin reservation, Wachusetts, Gloucester, Boston, Plymouth, and finally Martha’s Vineyard.
Book One in a four-book series about Nicholas’s adventures in the Northeast.
