Mimi's Aunt Bee sent her a special notebook in the mail. It is to record her adventures as she rescues animals. Mimi has saved everything from her three-legged dog Maty to a butterfly in a mud puddle. Now that she has her official notebook she is officially in business. Thanks to her colorful advertisements she gets a customer immediately. Mimi and Maty need to track down a lonely Dumbo Rat who has gone in search of his owner. The simple and colorful cartoon-like illustrations add to the fun of the story. This new series is a great choice for kids just starting the transition into chapter books.
