Samuel Squeaks’ Diary
Authors Jan Burchett, Sara Vogler
In this gripping tale set in London in 1666, we follow the adventures of Mr Samuel Squeaks: a not-so-ordinary London mouse. He might look like your average rodent (and certainly has a soft spot for cheese). But, like Samuel Pepys, the owner of the house where he lives, he also enjoys keeping a diary with exciting details of his daily escapades. When a blazing fire breaks out not far from home, he is thrown into the midst of a dangerous mission. Can Samuel escape the flickering flames, hungry cats and rescue all that is dear to him before it’s too late?
