Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Leo Lionni's Little Mice Tales brings together four classic stories starring resourceful mice into a boxed set of miniature paper-over-board editions. In the Caldecott Honor book Frederick, rather than gathering corn and nuts with the other mice, the hero collects colors, warmth and words to see the mice through the winter. In Matthew's Dream, a little mouse has a dream that inspires him to be a painter. A magical cheese sculpture teaches Geraldine how to make music in Geraldine, the Music Mouse. And in Tillie and the Wall, the youngest mouse finally finds out what's on the other side of a big wall. Lionni's colorful collage illustrations complement his simple but evocative text. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Good things do come in small packages and this quartet of mini books featuring Leo Lionni's mice is a delightful collection. Included is Frederick, the poet mouse, who stores up something special for the long cold winter. His stories and poems entertain his friends, and the collage art is just right for the story. (A New York Times Best Illustrated Book, and a Caldecott Honor Book.) After nibbling an enormous piece of parmesan cheese into the shape of a giant mouse holding a flute, Geraldine hears music for the first time in Geraldine, The Music Mouse. In Matthew's Dream, our hero takes his first trip to a museum where he experiences the world of art and meets Nicoletta. Now Matthew knows that he wants to become a painter. He does and eventually marries Nicoletta. His largest painting hangs in a museum, and he gives it a title "My Dream." It is a beautifully told tale of self discovery handsomely illustrated by Lionni. In Tillie and the Wall, our heroine is unlike the other mice, who are incurious about the wall that has always been part of their world. Tillie is determined to find out what lies on the other side of the wall. Put this on the list of items for any child who loves good stories and terrific illustrations. 2004, Alfred A Knopf, Ages 2 to 6.
