About this book

Belladonna, prima donna | Children's Fiction

Philip de Vos


Belladonna is part of a clan of opera mice. In the empty theatre, while the others scrounge around for bits of chocolate and nuts between the rows of seats, Belladonna takes to the big, dark stage, and imagines singing there under the bright lights, with row upon row of faces looking at her from the dusky opera house . . .

She knows the words to all the great operas that have been performed on that stage, even the ones in Italian and German. Her dream is to perform in front of a full house, but there’s just one problem: she knows of no opera with a role for a mouse.
