Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
The lap-sized board book is approximately the same size as the original hardcover. Because of the thick pages it is actually heavier. But then again it is also sturdier. Some little mice who are playing in the meadow decide to take a nap. While they are sleeping a snake comes along and begins to put them into a jar for his meal later. One at a time he adds the "little, warm, and tasty" mice: one, two, three, etc. He thinks there are enough when he reaches 10. One fast-thinking little mouse says there is another big mouse nearby. Being greedy, the snake leaves to fetch the big mouse. Alas, it is only a rock. While he is gone, however, the little mice rock the jar and escape. Walsh's lively collage mice and the snake that seems to slither from one page to the next are truly engaging. It is a welcome title in this sturdy format. The added attraction in this version is the text, which is printed in both English and Spanish—a real boon for children either learning one of the languages or for homes in which Spanish speaking parents would enjoy reading a book to their children who can eventually read it back to them in English.
