Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Deborah Zink Roffino
This tale of friendship and appreciating diversity features one of the best new mouse houses in children's literature. Rendered in soft, pastel watercolors, it is a classic under-the-old-oak-tree abode, full of staircases, tiny beds and teacups. Brothers and best friends, Louie and Dan are also furry faced, doe-eyed and totally irresistible.
Children's Literature - Rebecca Joseph
The mice brothers, Louie and Dan, return in this sequel to The Porcupine Mouse. In this wonderful book, Louie and Dan move out of their mother's house into their own house where Dan loves to go exploring while Louie loves to keep house. Both Louie and Dan get jealous when the other brother makes a friend, so they try to spend time with each other. Unfortunately, Louie hates exploring and Dan hates housekeeping. After a visit from their mother, the two brothers learn that respecting each other's differences and listening to each other's adventures can make a wonderful friendship. This beautiful tale not only tells an adorable story but also sends a strong message about what makes a strong friendship.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2Louie and Dan move out on their own: "Most of the time the two brothers were happy living together in their cozy home, even though Dan loved to go exploring and Louie was a stay-at-home sort of mouse." This difference in their personalities is at the heart of the story, and until the two learn how to communicate openly, their best efforts to please one another go awry. Pryor has a message in mind but she doesn't let it overwhelm the somewhat rambling, yet involving, story. The plot is nicely constructed, with minor characters providing contrast to the conflict between the two brothers. Miles's illustrations, done with watercolor pencil, are sweet and naturalistic at the same time. The soft colors favor a peculiar pumpkin-rust tone, but the artist's use of line and perspective are especially effective, and the mood of coziness (touched at times with humor, at other times with danger) is beautifully sustained. This long picture book would make a good read-aloud for primary-grade children who are exactly at an age when their interest in forming and maintaining relationships is intense. While not an essential purchase, this sequel to The Porcupine Mouse (Morrow, 1988) has charm and child appeal.Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL

    JUST LIKE BROTHERS

    This cute book is about brothers and their differences. My boys are younger and having difficulty being friends. I felt this book applied the theory that brothers don't have be exactly alike to be best friends. Mama Mouse just reminds the brothers why they are best friends and for the younger children Mama mouse is always right.
