Felix Finds his Fortune
Richard Thomas Carey
Felix is a poor but kind-hearted country mouse living in the harsh English countryside. With winter on its way, he decides that maybe it is time to make a new life for himself so heads off to London where he meets many characters throughout his long journey, who help him along his way. As he arrives in London, he meets a Raven Master, a fishmonger, and a milkmaid, all of who he helps to rid some pesky cats, in return for some food and shelter. On Christmas Eve, Felix is caught in a snowstorm but manages to find shelter for the night in a doll's house in the most famous toy shop in the world. Little does Felix know that he is in for a surprise when the doll's house is given to the princess for Christmas. When the princess opens her Christmas gift, she finds Felix inside where she is overjoyed and introduces him to her pet mouse Wilomena. It's love at first sight for both Felix and Wilomena and as he reflects on his journey, he realises that he has indeed found his fortune, recognising that a fortune isn't all about money & wealth but love, happiness, and kindness.
