PreS-Gr 1-Tyler, the town mouse, invites Charlie, the country mouse, to join him for an exciting day at the seashore. Perfectly content with his unexciting life, Charlie reluctantly meets his cousin at the appointed tree and hour, thereby launching an adventure unlike any he has ever experienced. After several narrow escapes at the shore, real tragedy strikes when a seabird carries Tyler off to be her chick's next meal. While Tyler fights off the hungry hatchling, fearless Charlie rappels down the cliff to his rescue. Back again on the porch of Charlie's quiet home, the mice agree that they both had been ``...terribly, terribly BRAVE!'' Charming watercolor and pen-and-ink illustrations are separated by blocks of text, creating action-filled vignettes. Juxtaposition of the fully garbed mice against the world of people and objects will stimulate young readers' imaginations and introduce them to the realm of fantasy where fear and bravery are as tangible as in a child's own life.-Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, NE
