Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for The Biggest Christmas Tree Ever
"A great tale about co-operation.” -- The Children's Book Review

Praise for The Biggest Valentine Ever
". . .this mouse tale about friendship and cooperation[is] an unequivocal success. Young mice fans will also enjoy the illustrations rendered in soft colors and black ink." --Through the Looking Glass Children's Book Review

Children's Literature - Emily Griffin
The teachers at Mouseville School are lucky. The principal has announced a contest! The mouse student who brings in the biggest apple to their teacher will win a prize. The young friends use what their families and teachers have taught them about apples to find the winner. When it appears James has found the biggest one, Desmond and Clayton do not get discouraged. Instead, with some help from the community, they work to bake the biggest apple pie ever. This paperback introduces many autumn activities in this tale of teamwork for early readers and listeners. The mice visit an orchard with their class, pick apples from trees in the neighborhood, and learn how to bake an apple pie. Originally publisher in 1993, this is one of many simple tales from Kroll and Bassett that have recently been reissued by Scholastic. A fun fit for schools and libraries looking for autumn themed books. Reviewer: Emily Griffin
