Weasel is ready for his dinner. And poor mouse is it. Just in time, he thinks up a clever and entertaining way to distract weasel from serving up mouse soup for supper.
Children's Literature - Tiffany EricksonA weasel gets much more than he bargained for when he captures a clever little mouse and tries to make mouse soup. The mouse explains to the weasel that mouse soup is better with stories and proceeds to tell four: "Bee and the Mud," "Two Large Stones," "The Crickets," and "The Thorn Bush." Each story is funny and entertaining on its own, but when the mouse tells the weasel that what he needs are the title ingredients, the reader will know that the weasel will get just what he deserves. The read along is narrated by Lobel himself with a lovely introduction and concluding statements. The cadence is perfect for new readers and most readers will be able to keep up just fine. Background music and sound effects fit perfectly with the text and really do add something to "The Crickets" story, since readers can experience just how annoying ten crickets can be. This is a wonderful set for libraries and classrooms. Reviewer: Tiffany Erickson
