More About This Title Snuze
The adventures start again in this third book of the series of Snuze, the house mouse turned garden mouse. He meets a lot of new characters and manages to make them all work together for the better of all Snuze?s friends and family. A good read and a fast and furious turn of events with an obvious battle at the end!
E. Rutherford was born and raised in the Channel Island of Guernsey where these books are set. With such a marvelous place to live, she had a wonderful childhood and loads of experiences: doing well at primary school and later gaining a place at the Girls Grammar School on the island; learning to help others; working while still at school with the St. John's Ambulance Brigade; pitch a tent, find and cook food with the Guide and Scout movement; and learning some Judo in her spare time! Whilst with the Grammar School, she joined the Boys Grammar School sailing club, learning to sail dinghies and small catamarans, row a dinghy, fish, and generally look after a boat and gaining a great respect for the sea. Family outings were often in her father?s yacht, Jabberwock. I think this indicates where the love of books and reading came from (C. S. Lewis?s Alice in Wonderland). Leaving the island to pursue a career at 17yrs (there were not many opportunities on the islands at that time). Met and married for the first time, marrying twice in all, up to date! For many years after, the children grown, she was running her own business, mainly office work, as an adjunct to the family business of estate agency. Now with four children, ten grandchildren, and one great grandchild, she has had loads of opportunities to both read and make up stories, over the years of their upbringing. E. Rutherford is now retired and lives alone with two big cats, Caesar and Cleopatra (Maine Coon and Turkish Fan cross), and two small (micro) cats, Jasper and Muffin, in Poole in Dorset, with an inbred love of the sea?where else? She keeps a close connection with her family. Steam trains, reading, classical music, and photography are the main interests. And writing stories for children!
