Brian Patten, one of Britain's best-loved poets, retells the story of Jumping Mouse. This Native American folk tale tells how a little mouse had the courage to leave his family's warm nest in the roots of a giant tree, and go in search of the Sacred Mountains. He has many adventures on the way and finds his true name of Jumping Mouse. He makes friends with a racoon, frog, buffalo and wolf, whilst taking care not to be caught by the Spots circling watchfully above in the sky.

This hero quest has enchanted generations of children since first publication in 1972. Brian Patten has updated his original version of the story for this second edition, which also reproduces the original illustrations by Mary Moore, the daughter of the sculptor Henry Moore
