Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
A mouse-eye view of high adventure.
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Another award winning picture book has been turned into a board book product. George is a little boy who has shrunk to the size of a mouse. As he tries to follow the instructions that his parents have left in a note, he doesn't seem to be the least bit fazed. Given his new size, ordinary chores now take on Herculean proportions. But George perseveres to clean up his room, brush his teeth, take care of his brother, and complete other household tasks.
