Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This fetching tale of mouse romance appealingly builds on the chronicles begun in Whose Mouse Are You? As the book opens, the mouse hero is playing "she loves me, she loves me not." Then, in the format familiar to series fans, an unseen interlocutor asks, "Why so dreamy, little mouse?" "I'm in love!" he replies. As this Q&A session continues, the mouse describes how he will "search on land, sea, and air" to find the "mouse of my dreams." If the book offered nothing but these romantic flourishes, the conceit would wear thin quickly. The charm comes when Kraus throws cold water on the mouse's musings: "Aren't you tired?" he is asked. "I'm pooped!" he admits, suddenly realizing he'd better scurry home for supper. The endearingly sketchy mouse and his "mousie fair" inhabit brilliantly blended multicolor backdrops, occasionally traveling into elaborate building-block palaces or labyrinthine train tracks; despite the use of busy patterns, Aruego and Dewey maintain a look of overall simplicity. They, like Kraus, know how to pack a wide range of experience into a child-size universe. Ages 4-7. (Sept.) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.

As Mouse picks the petals from a daisy, he discovers, "She loves me!" The only problem is that he doesn't know yet who she is. With the call-and-answer approach he used so effectively in Whose Mouse Are You, Kraus has his mouse describe how and where he will search for his true love. The illustrators expand the text by showing the object of his affection in each scene. Mouse, whether wearing his helmet and riding his skateboard or soaring through the air in an airplane, seems oblivious to her until the end when her red balloon "mysteriously" floats into his room. This girl-next-door story, complete with hearts and daisy petals, will liven up a Valentine's Day program for sure! 2000, Orchard Books,
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-A dreamy mouse lounges in the grass, plucking petals from a daisy, while spouting the familiar refrain, "She loves me./She loves me not." When an unseen observer asks about the object of his affection, he admits that he's never met her, but can't forget her. He vows to "-search on land,/sea, and air/until-/I find my mousie fair." The lovesick rodent finally realizes that his true love has been there the whole time-she is the mouse next door who has accompanied him on his adventures. The simple rhyming text is enhanced by Aruego and Dewey's ink-watercolor-and-pastel illustrations that depict the round, gray Romeo with his skateboard, backpack, sneakers, and helmet as he searches the playground and a castle of blocks, then travels by train, plane, and kayak to find his sweetheart. The girl mouse sports a pink bow and holds a red balloon, making her instantly identifiable throughout. This sweetly told tale is sure to be a hit.-Holly Belli, Bergen County Cooperative Library System, West Caldwell, NJ Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A trite valentine abbreviated to the point of confusion. Mouse, in love with he knows not whom—" ‘I've never met her. / But try as I may, I can't forget her.' "—vows to track "her" down, wherever she may dwell. He is joined in mid-quest by another mouse who sports a pink bow, is probably intended to be the second, questioning voice (" ‘Where will you find her?' "), though she is never seen actually speaking, and in the end turns out to be (surprise, surprise) his sweetheart. And where does she dwell? Next door, of course. Unlike this team's classics, such as Where Are You Going, Little Mouse? (1986), the illustrations seldom flesh out the minimal text, and that text, being an uneasy mix of prose and verse, develops a jerky rhythm at best. A weak effort from veterans who generally do better. (Picture book. 5-7)
