A little mouse loves to surf, but does he have the nerve to face his fears? The surfer mouse goes out on a beautiful day. The beach shows lovely gentle waves, but for a mouse the waves are the perfect size. He enjoys the smaller waves until a much bigger wave comes in. As he sees the size of it he paddles as fast as he can to catch the right spot. It is too big for him and he has a rough time, barely getting back to shore in one piece. But, instead of giving up for the day, the surfing mouse decides to face his fear head on. He goes out to meet the wave and catches it in just the right time. He rides the huge wave and lands on the sand. He gets a lot of cheering from the other mice on the beach! This book shows children how to face their fears and overcome them.
