Giveaway! The Song of the Winns by Frances Watts

Today we have a bonus for all our Mixed-Up readers.  We have a giveaway of two delightful books by Frances Watts. She is giving away the first two books in The Song of the Winns series – The Secret of the Ginger Mice, and The Spies of Gerander!

Secret of the Ginger Mice cover

Alistair, Alex, and Alice have always been an inseparable (though not necessarily harmonious) triplet of mice…that is until Alistair is kidnapped one summer’s night. While Alistair tries to make heads or tails of falling from the sky onto another young ginger-colored mouse named Tibby Rose (a most unusual incident on all accounts), Alex and Alice set off to find their missing brother. But in a world where spies abound and an elusive underground organization called FIG is only heard about in shushed bits and pieces, figuring out whom to trust is no small task for this intrepid trio. The key to the mystery seems to be within their grasp, but it only hints at another hair-raising adventure and creates more questions that seemed destined to remain unanswered.

 

Full of warm, clean humor and whippet-quick wit, Frances Watts’ new trilogy will effortlessly charm readers and adventurers alike.

 

Spies of Gerander cover

After discovering their parents are still alive and their homeland of Gerander is in danger, mouse triplets Alistair, Alice, and Alex, and their friend Tibby Rose, have joined the underground rebel organization FIG. In quick measure, FIG orders Alex and Alice go undercover in Souris to infiltrate Queen Eugenia’s palace while Alistair and Tibby Rose are sent to discover Gerander’s secret paths, which may be the key to both their homeland’s freedom and the rescue of the triplets’ parents.

Enemy spies, attacking eagles, and blizzarding mountaintops seem all the more challenging when there is a lack of good cheese available, but these four young mice respond with endless creativity and determination. Cheeky and entertaining, The Spies of Gerander is a worthy sequel to The Secret of the Ginger Mice.
