Celebrated author and illustrator Henry Cole uses stunningly detailed black-and-white artwork to illuminate a tale of friendship between an adventurous mouse and a boy who would become one of America’s greatest presidents.

Celeste is hundreds of miles from home following an unexpected journey aboard a Mississippi steamboat. After mishaps and disasters, she finds herself on the frontier in southern Indiana. It's 1822, and Celeste meets a tall, lanky boy wielding an ax: a young Abraham Lincoln.

ANOTHER QUEST FOR CELESTE is told from the point of view of a mouse named Celeste. One day, she gets swept away from her home and is thrown onto a steamboat with some apples. Celeste is terrified and doesn't know how she's going to get home, but then she meets Rosebud, an old, three-legged dog. They find comfort in each other's company until the ship crashes and sinks.

Next, Celeste finds herself in a forest and meets all kinds of new friends, like beavers and squirrels. she learns new things from them and is taught about the danger of the upcoming winter. But before it gets too cold, Celeste is discovered by a young Abe and finds herself enjoying her new home with him.

ANOTHER QUEST FOR CELESTE teaches that home is where you find happiness and love. It was interesting to see everything from a mouse's POV and makes you think of things differently. This was an interesting take on if Abraham Lincoln would've discovered and kept a pet mouse. The illustrations are also black and white and beautifully detailed.


Final Verdict: I would recommend this book to those who like animals and history. I liked the Abe Lincoln factor and how it shows what his days might've been like.
