Harry The Happy Mouse is a cheerful, traditional story about a Mouse called Harry who lives in the colorful English countryside.

Harry helps a Frog, but asks the Frog to repay the kindness to someone else. We follow the good deed as it moves through other characters, who each selflessly help someone else, making themselves feel happy in the process!

We learn that a little bit of happiness can go a long way!

Harry The Happy Mouse is illustrated by the award winning Janelle Dimmett, bringing the beautiful story to life.

Harry the Happy Mouse is 32 beautifully illustrated full colour pages.


A delightful little book about a mouse who helps a frog that he meets on his evening walk. When the frog wishes to repay him for his kindness he states (and it is a repeated line throughout):

“You shouldn’t thank me, just help someone too! That’ll be better, for me and for you!”

The illustrations were cute, colourful and fun to look at. My only concern was that the font was a bit difficult to read. Now this might not be the case when reading a physical copy of the book, but I was reading this to a child on my tablet and it was a bit of an issue as I could not increase the size of the font.

We also enjoyed the cadence of the story. Seemed to be catchy enough so that the line from above was repeated numerous times by the little one I was reading to (yeah).

As books 2 and 3 are also free on Kindle (Harry the Christmas Mouse and Harry’s Spooky Surprise), I have downloaded them to read the next time I am looking after young one’s as I like the message portrayed in this book – one of being helpful and paying it forward. Great lesson to teach children.

" Love it !!The pictures are incredible, the story is great for little and big kids.I gave it 4 stars since I couldn't read it on my macbook pro, however it was perfect on the Ipad. " said.

" Beautiful artwork and very pleasant rhyme makes this a delight to share with your little ones.The story tells about the value of doing good for others and how good it makes you feel.How doing a small good deed can pay off in a very large way. " said.

" Pay it forward.Most of the illustrations for this book were very very nice, but a few were on the amateurish side, like they were tired of drawing the main subjects that day. Ha ha. The story was rhyming and it did a good job with that. The reading rhythm was only slightly off in a couple of places. Its message of paying it forward and the act of helping making you feel good was wonderful. " said.
