Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
Today, we're celebrating the upcoming release of the latest Bruce adventure from author Ryan T. Higgins and Disney Hyperion! You know, Bruce...right? Bruce...of Mother Bruce fame? Ah, there you go! I saw that light bulb turn on. Now, he's the BIG news...he's got another adventure slated for release September 26th, 2017...but we've got your sneak peek TODAY! So, if you're ready to move some refrigerators (music joke...couldn't resist!), let's get this housewarming party started! Today's book of choice is....
This is an adorable story that follows the further adventures of Mother Bruce and friends, or rather his four charges. He and the geese were getting along fine. They made a home for themselves, found routines, and took comfort in each other's presence...until three little (not-so-blind) mice made THEMSELVES at home. It seems Bruce's abode wasn't quite big enough for them all and so...Bruce picks up and leaves, with the mice growing ever smaller in his rear view. I know what you're thinking...why didn't he make THEM leave? Well, he tried, but they weren't exactly getting the message, so move he did. Will he and the geese find the perfect home? A place to call their own that's quieter, neater, and less neighborly seems like a small list of desires to grant...but I don't think Bruce was ever told to be careful what you wish for.
In the end, it's an entertaining story that speaks the truth universally known...home isn't just where you hang your hat, but where you house your heart. With illustrations to dazzle, hidden humors to discover, and a grumpily bear leading them all, there's something for every reader to enjoy. Oh and take note! Look UNDER the book jacket for a laugh-out-loud surprise!
