Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-Mouse and his "Mousegirl" sit in the tree together while he tells her all the risks he will take to prove his devotion to her. While he promises to brave mountains, deserts, and oceans, their tree branch breaks, leaving them in a compromising position involving a large cat. Now Mouse must deliver, and he saves Mousegirl by enticing the cat to chase after him instead-to what end, readers will never know. Effective watercolor illustrations manage to depict these rough and raw mice (complete with wiry fur and torn ears) in a funny and appealing way. However, the sharp contrast between the scruffily illustrated figures and their mushy dialogue is where the comedy ends. Many children will be put off by all the sappy proclamations of Mouse's love for his sweetheart, while others will be dissatisfied with the abrupt ending that leaves the hero's fate undetermined. Meanwhile, adults looking for books representing strong female characters will need to look elsewhere as this Mousegirl is completely dependent on her man.-Julie Roach, Watertown Free Public Library, MA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
