Idina Menzel and Cara Mentzel’s new children’s book, PROUD MOUSE, is out now! The book is a companion piece to their first children’s book, LOUD MOUSE. The duo stopped by Good Morning America yesterday morning to chat about the book, which focuses on Cara’s character, Cara Lee.
Cara Lee is a proud mouse. She is proud of her big sister Dee. She is proud of her specially decorated journal. And now she’s proud to become what she’s always wanted to be: a student. But her first day of school is different than she imagined. Everyone keeps comparing her to Dee. But who is Cara Lee? When you have a big sister with such a LOUD talent, how can you find room to shine in your own way?
Complete with gorgeous illustrations and filled with humor and heart, Proud Mouse is a clever tale about celebrating the things that make you YOU and having the confidence to stand loud and proud.
