Ezra and the Mouse: The Search for Lafayette (September 2021) by Victoria J. Coe

Set in Duxbury in 1822, Ezra and the Mouse: The Search for Lafayette is a fast-paced historical adventure that will have readers rooting for two unlikely heroes – Ezra Weston IV, the 12 year old grandson of shipping magnate King Caesar, and a mouse named Bertie that he and his cousin Elizabeth Bradford rescue (or “capture” as the mice believe) at the shipyard. Told in dual points of view, inspired by actual events, and written by Duxbury native and popular children’s author Victoria J. Coe, readers of all ages will delight in seeing Duxbury’s shipbuilding past come to life while discovering a surprising, yet little known episode about the Marquis de Lafayette.
