The Mousehunter by Alex Milway

Emiline is not particularly happy being the mousekeeper to Isiah Lovelock, the most famous mouse collector in Midena. But when the pirate, Mousebeard, threatens Isiah's mouse collecting overseas, Emiline volunteers to join Captain Devlin Drewshank's crew to catch the feared pirate. But the mission is turned upside down when Drewshank and Emiline discover that Isiah is the real pirate.

The Mousehunter is the d├ębut novel for Milway in which he is both the author and illustrator. Milway adds illustrated entries from The Mousehunter's Almanac (a book written by Isiah Lovelock) at chapter beginnings to showcase the varieties of mice in this world--similar to Cressida Cowell's How To Train Your Dragon series. The Mousehunter is the beginning book of Milway's trilogy, with The Curse of Mousebeard and Mousebeard's Revenge following. Readers from elementary to high school will enjoy this rambunctious and rousing middle-grade read.
