In The House of Well-Kept Secrets, the adventure continues as Pitter and Patter along with the rest of the mischievous Mouse Scouts meet on the school playground. With Miss Mousy and Scoutmaster Maus in the lead, the perky pack of excited hikers leave the safety of the Burrow and head into the deep, dark, dangerous woods. A turbulent and terrifying time awaits the tiny band as they trek towards a colonial cabin known as Shelter Haus to rendezvous with Uncle Emoji Maus. Against all odds, and with the help of some new found friends, the tiny trailblazers find themselves fighting tooth and claw to survive an attack by a deadly airborne nocturnal nemesis. The House of Well-Kept Secrets, is the second book in the E.M.Maus Burrow Mysteries series and continues the story of a small town in Pennsylvania, but with a twist. That's because this old historic borough called Emmaus happens to also be inhabited by an underground world of mice that live in what is known as the other Burrow of E.M.Maus.
E.M.Maus Burrow Mysteries, is a series of children's books that tells the story of a small town in Pennsylvania, but with a twist. That's because the old historic borough of Emmaus happens to also be inhabited by a hidden underground world of mice that live in what is known as the other Burrow of E.M.Maus. As we all know, our world above ground is a very strange place where everything comes in different and diverse shapes and sizes. So, it makes perfect sense that in an old town like Emmaus, these mysterious Maus hideaways come in all shapes and sizes too. Some are big and easy to find, but the very best are small and hard to spot. That tiny hole in the wall over there could lead to one, or maybe it's that creepy crevice behind the old toys and stinky socks in your bedroom closet. Don't worry, you have nothing to fear. These are merely peaceful portals to a bustling subterranean community, the historic Burrow of E.M.Maus, where enchanted entrances to a nocturnal world are hidden in plain sight. The adventure continues with Book two, The House of Well-Kept Secrets, where the curious little band of mice set out on a night class field mouse trip to The Shelter House, a colonial log cabin, in a quest for more history mystery clues. From start to finish these twisted E.M.Maus tales have deadly dangers around every bend in the trail and dire disasters nipping at their toes. There are short poems throughout the books that help enhance the historical lessons in a fun and unique way. The E. M. Maus Burrow Mysteries book series is enjoyable for any age, with readability for ages Third Grade to Middle School.
