Waterstones Says

Battling through enemy territory in a desperate bid to reach her Italian ancestral home, Pip Hanway's wartime adventures are brought to vivid life in the beautifully realised sequel to the acclaimed The Umbrella Mouse.

Exclusive extra material from Anna Fargher about real animal heroes in wartime.

A timeless tale of courage, friendship and fighting for what you believe in, Umbrella Mouse to the Rescue is the eagerly anticipated sequel to Anna Fargher's award-winning The Umbrella Mouse, based on the true stories of the heroic animals caught in the conflict of WWII.

Young mouse Pip Hanway is in France as she continues fighting for the French Resistance group Noah's Ark: a secret gang of animals operating beneath the feet of human soldiers, whose aim is to liberate France and secure the victory of the Allies. Determined to reach her ancestral home of the Umbrella Museum in Italy, Pip hopes she can find long-lost family and a home. But as Pip makes the perilous journey through occupied territory, she soon realizes that danger comes from all sides and that the enemy is all around, and she does everything she can to fight for her friends.

Beautifully illustrated by Sam Usher, Pip will take you on an incredible journey through a war that reaches even the smallest of creatures.
