About the Book:

Join Sam the mouse as he leads his mouse tribe from the dangers inside the house to the promised land Outside. Will they finally escape Faro the cat? Will they finally be free? Along the way, the group learns about hard work, creative thinking, and the benefits of self-sacrifice. However, the Outside is not without its own challenges! This charming tale gently deals with various issues that face children, the power of evil vs. the power of God, the reasons for warnings, faithfulness, and the ability to change among others. Rev. Dan Shutters wrote this parable of the Book of Exodus for use as a series of children’s sermons.
