Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—When Duck awakens to the sound of "pshh pshh!" coming from under her bed, she is too afraid to look. She calls from her window to Pig and tells him about the scary "pshh pshh, grrr!" sound. The porker goes to fetch Bear, who is strong, and tells of the sound. Soon Wolf and clever Owl are added to the group, and the noise has gotten much longer and more menacing. Owl declares Duck in danger, and Pig is convinced that only a monster would make such a sound. Once monster-catching tools have been gathered, the group makes its way to Duck's bed, where they discover a tiny mouse snoring underneath. They all giggle as Owl announces that they've "made a monster out of a mouse!" Landa's suspenseful (but not too scary) text is fun to read, especially the alarming sounds, which are set in large type and a multitude of fonts. Warnes's illustrations bring the text to life with apt expressions and a sense of urgency. As the story progresses, the artist subtly tracks the passage of time with the rising of the sun—a nice touch. Great for reading out loud.—Catherine Callegari, Gay-Kimball Library, Troy, NH
Kirkus Reviews
This picture book by veterans Landa and Warnes puts a stale spin on a timeless lesson: There's no use in making a mountain out of molehill, or, in this case, a monster out of a mouse. When Duck hears suspicious noises coming from under her bed, she turns to her trusty forest friends, Pig, Bear, Wolf and Owl, to help investigate what horrid creature must be lurking under her bed. As each one passes the message along to the other, the monster becomes more and more terrifying and makes increasingly more menacing noises-from the "pshh pshh!" Duck initially hears to a cumulative "pshh pshh, grrr, bang bang, wham wham, grrrowl! OOOOOOoooeeeeee!"-until they finally decide to face the beast head on. The gang is left feeling silly when they realize the awful monster they've imagined is nothing more than an innocuous little mouse. The Disney-esque depictions of the likable-enough, though entirely bland characters make both figures and setting seem recycled rather than fresh. Although there is an important lesson to be learned here, this picture book would've benefited from a bit more imagination. (Picture book. 3-6)
