William Brambleberry: Aviator Mouse
The Adventures of William Brambleberry: Aviator Mouse is a historical-fiction children’s picture book. It was first published as a softcover book in 2015 and then through Geneviève’s independent publishing imprint Brambleberry Press in its current hardcover form in 2017. Not long after, Geneviève produced the soft toy aviator mouse to accompany the book.
This book is about William Brambleberry, who was a very small mouse with a very big dream. He was determined to fly a Spitfire and he practiced until he really did become the bravest most adventurous aviator mouse in all the world. It is based on 453 Squadron, an Australia Spitfire Squadron stationed in the UK during WWII, which saw distinguished service in the D-Day Normandy landings and over the skies of the UK, France and Germany.
