Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
``Whenever the mouse family gathered around their TV, they could never agree on what to watch,'' opens an understated text that Novak ( Elmer Blunt's Open House ; The Last Christmas Present ) quickly fleshes out with acrylic paintings amusingly jammed with pleasing particulars. The first illustration--revealing 10 rapt mice around the TV--is followed by 10 pages of paneled art showing sequences from each mouse's favorite channel. Novak uses this structure to parody a range of television fare--including adventure, comedy, mystery, game and how-to shows--and lets kids create their own story lines for the wordless plots. But the clan's preferred pastime is interrupted when the television goes on the blink one night. ``What do we do now?'' asks a baffled Papa, but the answer is quick in coming. The clan plays games, makes crafts, sings, dances and performs experiments. And best of all, when Papa reads to eight tiny mice tucked into one bed, ``there were no commercials.'' Novak's deft humor ensures a subtle delivery of his worthy message. Ages 3-6. (Sept.)
Children's Literature - Jan Lieberman
The arguing over which channel the 10-menber Mouse family will watch grows loudest during commercials...then the TV breaks! Novak offers a hilarious look at the programs the family watches, presented in storyboard TV format. This is followed by the wealth of activities they discover together. The inventiveness of this family is riotous and rollicking fun. The text is brief but the pictures inspire responses.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2Comedy, science, history, or mysteryeach member of the mouse family has a different TV favorite. But when the screen goes blank, the ingenious rodents discover the fun of doing rather than watching. Intricate cartoon panels of the shows they watch and the activities they engage in offer lingering viewing pleasure. (Oct. 1994)
Stephanie Zvirin
Here's the perfect picture book for pint-size couch potatoes. Everybody in the mouse family loves TV, but no two of the mice like the same thing. Their arguments, loudest during commercials, always wake the baby. Then one day the unthinkable happens--the TV breaks down. But surprise, surprise. The mice find lots of active ways to satisfy their interests, and "best of all. . . there were no commercials." The jacket design, a big TV screen, introduces the book's first double-page spreads, which are filled with mice parodying programs--game shows ("Get the Cheese"), science programs ("It's a Frog's Life"), and more. The spoof is grand; nobody will miss the unapologetic dig at the medium; and for children inclined to be more literal, there's plenty of broad comedy in the fetchingly rendered mousecapades.
