Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—A picture book about the benefits of sharing an indulgence. Little Mouse finds a giant chocolate-chip, raspberry-cream cupcake, but it's too big for him to carry. He enlists the help of a few of his sweet-toothed friends, each of whom asks for a taste. Bird takes a nibble from the top, while Frog, Mole, Snail, Chipmunk, and Possum sink their paws into overflowing amounts of cake and icing. After slurping and chomping down their share, the friends gather around to peek inside at what appears to be an empty cupcake liner. Readers will be surprised to discover what is left and where it goes. Children will like the predictable rhythm, the rhyme on the last page, and the sound effects they are prompted to make throughout the book. Watercolor, pencil, and graphite ink illustrations and large brown text appear against a soft white background. The cheerfulness of this story extends to the jacket flap and endpapers. Sure to be a storytime favorite.—Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canada
Kirkus Reviews
A little mouse with a big problem finds the answer in generosity. Little Mouse discovers quite the treasure trove when he stumbles across a delicious chocolate-chip, raspberry-cream cupcake. But how in the world can he carry it home? Bird's arrival seems perfectly timed, but she can't manage it either. But perhaps she could have a crumb to try? Generous to a fault, Little Mouse agrees and shares with Bird...and Frog, Mole, Snail, Possum and Chipmunk. Happy to share, Little Mouse nonetheless cannot hide his worry that the animals are taking bites that are too big. But in the end, this is what solves the problem. Barton's soft-hued watercolor-and-pencil illustrations wonderfully complement the text. The beautifully decorated cupcake towers over Little Mouse, dwarfing him—and the others as well. Her animals are only lightly anthropomorphized, with expressions that match their emotions—puzzlement, worry, gluttony, despair, happiness. Paired with Don and Audrey Wood's classic The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear, this is a great lesson in sharing. (Picture book. 3-7)

Meet the Author

Thomas Taylor

The translator of this work, Thomas Taylor, is known for his authoritative translations of the Platonists; he was practically the sole source of Neo-Platonic thought in the transcendentalist movement of New England. Iamblichus' Life of Pythagoras was a constant source of inspiration to the transcendentalists and a major influence on their writings throughout the Nineteenth Century. Taylor's work was enthusiastically acclaimed by Emerson, who referred to the translator as "a Greek born out of his time, and dropped on the ridicule of a blind and frivolous age."
