The Surfing Mouse


The Surfing Mouse

by Stefan Piccione

GENRE: Children's Fiction

Everyone's afraid of something. "The Surfing Mouse" is the story of a brave young mouse who overcomes his fear of surfing big waves. It shows how determination, strength, and a strong belief in yourself can help you achieve your dreams and goals. With stunning illustrations and a catchy rhyming story, this epic "tail" will surely captivate your children. Surf is definitely up!


My Thoughts and Review:

The Surfing Mouse is a really cute book for children. Written in sing-song poetry style, it makes for a fun read or listen for your young ones. The story is short, but good - with the moral being to never give up, even when it appears to be the roughest of seas.  My Rating: 5 out of 5

About the Author:

Stefan Piccione has enjoyed a lifelong passion for the ocean, an unrelenting love of surfing, and a great appreciation for a well-crafted story. This combination would eventually inspire him to write a children's book about a courageous young surfing mouse. Stefan graduated from Fairfield University with a degree in film and a minor in Italian studies. Having written a myriad of songs, short films, a feature film, web series, and numerous children's books, "The Surfing Mouse" is his very first children's book. Outside of writing and surfing, Stefan enjoys playing guitar, soccer, basketball, and beach volleyball. He is an avid environmentalist, regularly cleaning up ocean and coastline plastic while out on his paddleboard or walking the beautiful beaches of Rhode Island. Stefan currently resides on the coast of Eastern Connecticut.

  1. This is a great book for my students and grandgirls in Calif as they go to the beach with their dad all the time and see so many surfers out there.
