Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In their home deep within the city, five small mice are fascinated by the music they hear. They follow the sound to the park. There, a sign says that the concert is for frogs only. They sneak in to listen, but are told to leave. Still excited by the beautiful music, they decide to make their own instruments and music. They practice and prepare a concert. To their delight, they are a success. Among the mice in the audience they notice frogs. For the frogs, they play “Over the Moon,” the frog song they had really liked. Soon, all are singing together, and they continue to sing together on the next full moon. This sweet tale of cooperation is told with humor. The visual narrative begins on the initial endpapers in the mice’s home. Mixed media create rich surfaces and distinct, appealing characters for the adventure that also includes details of the mice’s home, landscapes, and crowd scenes of mice and frogs. The final endpapers show the mice and frogs intermingled in satisfied exhaustion, while the inventive illustrations invite readers to go back again. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz

PreS-Gr 2
Under a full moon, five mice follow the sound of beautiful music to a city park where frogs are giving a concert. The rodents' enjoyment is cut short when a booming voice informs them that the event is for frogs only. They are disappointed, but not dejected. The memory of one lovely song, "Over the Moon," inspires them to form their own orchestra. They create instruments, practice, and hold their own performance. Frogs sneak in and are made welcome. All join in to sing "Over the Moon," proving that sharing music is the best way to enjoy it. Quiet text and delightful artwork blend harmoniously to convey the action and excitement. The illustrations fill in the details as the mice build their instruments. Ordinary objects take on new possibilities when given a mouse-size perspective. A drinking straw becomes a flute. A matchbox and thread become a guitar. Subdued colors with bright accents heighten the musicians' anticipation as they nervously wait backstage. As a mouse peeks through the curtains, a double-page view shows the audience. Readers will catch a glimpse of the frogs, incognito, as they enter the auditorium. Colors brighten as the songs flow and carry the story to its melodious conclusion. This beautiful book, like the music, should be shared-either individually or in storytime.
