As far as I know, until now no child has ever been close to Mousenet. In about a month, when it hits bookstores and libraries, that could change–so to break it in gently I showed it to my husband's second or third cousins two or three times removed (but who's counting?). And here they are: eight-year-old Hannah Wolf reading from the bound galley to her sister Abby, who is almost five. They seemed to like it. Phew.
