Since that day, Clair-de-Lune hasn’t uttered a word.Then one day the girl who cannot speak meets a remarkable mouse who can. Bonaventure dreams of founding a dancing school just for mice—but he dreams of helping his new friend, too. Soon the brave little mouse introduces Clair-de-Lune to a hidden world inside, and yet somehow beyond, her building—a world that slowly begins to open her heart. Maybe one day her dreams will come true, too.

Profile Picture

Clair-de-Lune lives for dancing, and that's all she has lived for her whole life. She has mastered the art of it; what more could she want? Her heart is still not content though, for she longs to speak the words of her heart just like everyone else, but she cannot because she is mute. One day she meets a mouse named Bonaventure while weeping in the dance room and surprisingly, he could talk. Bonaventure takes Clair-de-Lune to the monastery where she meets a man named Brother Inchmahome, who tells her that he can teach her how to speak.
