Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Trying to get baby mouse to go to sleep, Mrs. Mouse enlists the help of her friends in response to his cries of ``Mother, mother, I want another,'' thinking he wants another mother, until he tells her he wants another kiss. ``Polushkin's comedy of errors accelerates into a whirlwind of crises,'' PW said, ``and the richly hued paintings burst with life, humor and imaginative touches.'' (3-6)
Children's Literature
Mrs. Mouse does an excellent job bedding down her baby. There is dressing, teeth brushing, reading, and tucking in. All is going smoothly until her good night bedtime kiss. Her baby cries and demands, "I want another." This sends Mrs. Mouse into a searching frenzy as she seeks another animal parent who can bring her baby the reassurance needed. Each animal sings a special comforting lullaby, but none fill the bill. Finally the frustrated baby clarifies, "No more mothers. I want another kiss!" At this point all the mothers provide a kiss. The best kiss of all comes from his mother and it is so satisfying he asks for another. This time Mrs. Mouse confidently kisses her comforted baby good night. 2005, Knopf/Random House, Ages 2 to 5.

School Library Journal
PreS-A newly illustrated edition of a charming bedtime story first published in 1976, with equally charming pictures that emphasize the silliness and coziness of the text. When Mother Mouse puts her child to bed, she kisses him good night. But he starts to cry, declaring, "I want another, Mother." She assumes he wants another mother, and the story continues from there as she enlists various animals to be his other mother (even as she looks rather stricken at the prospect). A cumulative, satisfyingly repetitive story, this also offers young children a chance to get the joke well before the adult does. Goodell's colorful paintings are a delight, adding humor, emotion, and liveliness. Since this was first published, there has been an overabundance of sweet bedtime stories. This one is not especially distinctive, but is certainly good fun. All but the smallest collections will want to consider adding it to their supply of books designed to end the day with a smile (and a kiss, of course).-Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A classic bedtime story (originally 1978, with illustrations by Diane Dawson) gets a well-earned reissue with handsome new art. Mrs. Mouse tucks baby mouse in and gives him a goodnight kiss-then, responding to his request for "another, mother," she hustles out to round up alternative parents: Mrs. Duck, Mrs. Frog, Mrs. Pig, and Mrs. Donkey, each of whom sings him a lullaby-"Quack, quack, mousie, / Don't you fret. / I'll bring you worms / Both fat and wet." Goodell offers finely brushed, richly colored naturalistic settings, though he places baby mouse in a cozily appointed tree-trunk house, and dresses the maternal menagerie in cropped pants, house dresses, and other domestic wear. Baby mouse at last has enough: "I want another KISS!" The light dawning, each mother proceeds to oblige, ending with a relieved Mrs. Mouse. Younger children will adore this now, as they did a generation ago. (Picture book. 4-7)

    My daughter LOVES this book. When we read it, she does that love

    My daughter LOVES this book. When we read it, she does that lovely baby whole body giggle. It is fun to see her understand the humor. We've read it over and over.
