The Somewhat True Adventures of Sammy Shine by Henry Cole is certainly high adventure. Sammy is a pet mouse, inadvertently launched into flight in a plane that is just his size. Unfortunately he has no idea how to fly a plane, so the inevitable crash lands him in some dark woods full of surprises. With the help of new friends he sets off in search of a raccoon called Goggles who can repair the plane. They have lots of adventures on the way to a very satisfying resolution. Very emotive illustrations also propel this young reader’s chapter book.
