Fiona is one of a litter of mice that was born behind the wall of the dressing room closet in the Noodle Soup Community Theater. Though Ma Mouse's warnings are meant to keep her safe, Fiona wanders onto the stage when no one is around and meets a friend who shows her the theater from a different perspective.
Fiona faces danger, excitement, and a return home where her family is in peril. Can she save them with her new friend's help?
Fiona the Theater Mouse is a 64 page book of ten chapters that will appeal to children in grades K-4. Great as a read aloud with dialogue and a moving plot line. The chapters are short and the font is large enough for a child to manage (and easy on an adult's eyes when reading aloud).
Some of the vocabulary will be challenging for younger children to manage independently, but when read aloud first and accompanied with the activities in the study guide, children will be pleased at the new words they will learn within the context of a fun story.

I loved your story and I m 67, just a kid at heart! Great article!
sheilamarie, Your reading of the first chapter is well done!
I appreciate that "Brigadoon" is an inspiration for your mouse story. It's such a magical musical, and I have enjoyed watching the film version with Gene Kelly and Cyd Charisse many times, again and again, over the years.
Thanks, Mira. Actually, I've been thinking of doing the audio book. I'm working out how to do it.
Enjoyed your video, Sheila! :) Great storytelling voice and mimicry! And the story is appealing, kept me interested throughout. A great combo. Hope many kids get to enjoy your book. Maybe you could do an audio book as well yourself through the same publishing house?
Thanks, 2uesday! I appreciate your encouragement.
Ha! Dustytoes, the mice that come into your house are not as cute as the ones in the story. One of my sons now has a couple of little girls who I get to share stories with. It's very fun!
Congratulations, Sheri! Being a grandmother is really wonderful!
This is a great story - and I love your reading of it in the videoclip. As a soon-to-be-first-time-grandmother, I'm once more interested in kids' stuff.
What fun for your boys to have had that acting experience that led to your idea for this book, in a round about way. Your way of telling the story, in the video, is very engaging. I listened to quite a bit of it. And now you've made me feel bad about setting mouse traps.
LR, Lou16, and Holistic Health, thanks for your comments. I have just finished a new cover for the book and will post it here shortly. I hope you'll get a chance to read the story.
