Whats your Favourite Book?

Its time for a new challenge at As You Like It
and the theme is 
Favourite Book Inspiration (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Our fab sponsor is
Wild Orchid Crafts

Hmmm this is a difficult challenge for me because I was not a great reader due to being dyslexic and still am not a great reader of books... but when I had my son I started trying to read aloud children's books....  I think did enjoy reading books and short stories to him and also to the children when I worked in a nursery school and one of the stories I found and enjoyed working on is  The Hungry Mouse
The Story is short and a little funny its about a mouse who had a very bad time finding food, the ending is a little (cough) ermm Sad/fun
so I was inspired to use a House mouse image and this one with the mouse and cheese was just right. the sentiment I have made on my PC and the image is coloured with Spectrum noir pens.
I thought I would play a few challenges too!
