Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, July 15, 2007:
"Captivating illustrations ... Cleverly designed, inventively enacted, and charming from fork to finish."

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, August 2007:
"Beguiling comparison of human-and mouse-scale worlds ... Donofrio and McClintock give exquisite attention to the girl's and mouse's parallel lives, emphasizing cross-generational connections and shared secrets."

    Beautiful illustrations, sweet, poignant story

    I first read this book to my daughter when she was 4 years old -- we borrowed it from the public library. She loved it so much that we bought it for her 5th birthday. The book shows Mary, and the mouse, as they grow up (and as their families grow with them). The drawings of the home interiors are utterly charming -- especially for the mouse houses!
