Cyprienne, the little mouse ambassador of the Vaudreuil-Soulanges Regional Museum, takes her new role to heart. Now familiar with traveling through time, she knows that being away from what she knows is a small price to pay to see history unfold before her eyes. Carefully choosing each artifact that will send her on incredible journeys, Cyprienne sets her sights on a huge bell in one of the museum’s glass cases. The moment her tiny paw touches the bell, she is transported to the bridge of a steamboat. It’s the Cécilia L., and it is only hours away from sinking into Lake St. Louis on November 1, 1912.
