Written for the enjoyment of children ages 4-10, "Ambrose and the Cathedral Dream" is a wonderful picturebook about a small mouse with big dreams.

Ambrose's dream is no less than to help William the Master Builder find his dream. A lavishly illustrated story about inspiration, courage, and the wonder of seeing architectural beauty gradually take shape.
 
You Gotta Love a Somersaulting Mouse  Dec 19, 2006
Author Margo Sorenson and illustrator Katalin Szegedi team up again to bring young audiences a second Ambrose-the-Mouse adventure. Like its predecessor "Ambrose and the Princess" this work is set in medieval times and provides a glimpse at the culture of the day. Ambrose and his cousins are the third generation of their family to perform somersaults to pep up the cathedral craftsmen when their energy flags. Ambrose tends to daydream instead of practice his somersaults, which results in clumsy performance and jeers from the male cousins, who end up praising Ambrose for discovering and meeting a challenge of his own. There is also a strong family message as we learn that Ambrose's grandfather was a somersaulting mouse who entertained the master builder of his day. And, wait, the current master builder's dream was that his own son would take an interest in building the cathedral. Which he did after seeing Ambrose turn a somersault! Readers and listeners from 4-10 will enjoy the simple story, history lesson, even the gargoyles, and the gorgeous illustrations.
