Overview

This exciting sequel to Marcus Pfister's best-selling Milo and the Magical Stones picks up where the happy resolution to that alternate-ending book left off. Winter is over and Milo sets out to explore. But Milo knows every nook and cranny of his small island and he is restless and bored. How wonderful it would be, he thinks, to see what lies over the horizon. He shares his dream with the other cliff mice, and together they build a giant raft and set out on a voyage of discovery. Their voyage takes them to a lush tropical island inhabited by friendly striped mice. What kind of explorers will the cliff mice be? Will their discovery lead to good or evil? It's up to the reader to decide. Halfway through the story, the book splits into two sections, each offering a different ending. From Marcus Pfister, creator of "The Rainbow Fish," comes a thought-provoking story that, with the book's unique format, actively involves children in the decision-making process.

Milo and some of the other island mice build a raft and go on an ocean voyage in search of the island of striped mice. Halfway through, the book splits into two sections, offering two possible endings from which the reader can choose.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-This seagoing saga contains aspects of the Columbus story and the "Choose Your Own Adventure" series (Bantam). Milo and his fellow cliff mice sail on a homemade raft to an island where strange, striped mice are reputed to live. Magical stones that give light are in their cargo. When the strangers finally arrive, they see "a crowd of striped mice standing on the beach, waiting for them-." The last 13 pages of the book are split into two endings, one happy and one sad. Will the cliff mice be friendly and cooperative, share their treasures, and hope for the best? Or, will they be fearful, untrusting, and greedy? The fuzzy, subdued illustrations give a mysterious sense of place and a chance for the glittery, golden, magical stones to shine-literally! This well-written story would be a great inspiration for group discussion about the spirit of exploration and encountering people who are different.-Carolyn Jenks, First Parish Unitarian Church, Portland, ME Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
