Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS While strong on story, this title is short on information. It follows the young mouse as she is injured while playing on her trampoline. With the assistance of her friend Charley, she is off to the hospital where Doctor Duck sets her broken bone and Nurse Comfort puts her to bed in the children's ward. Maisy makes friends with her roommate and returns home the next day after learning to walk with her crutches. The gouache artwork is done in Cousins's familiar style and leavens the potentially frightening situations. Paulette Bourgeois's Franklin Goes to the Hospital (Kids Can, 2000) and Fred Rogers's Going to the Hospital (Putnam, 1988) offer more technical, child-friendly details about the experience.-G. Alyssa Parkinson, Highland Township Library, MI
