PreS-Gr 3-- A slight, amusing story that pokes fun at know-it-alls everywhere. Mouse receives an enormous package for her birthday from her friend Rat. It's a construction kit with a note that reads: ``Put together the things you see/ Then climb aboard and visit me.'' `` `No problem' '' says Mouse, but her confidence soon wanes when she builds a silly, very wobbly contraption. Her friends Badger and Otter offer their help, but in each case, of course, they botch the job. Then little Shrew decides to read the directions--novel idea--and they all fly together in the newly constructed airplane to Rat's house for a party. While the text is lively, the book's appeal is in the visual humor expressed in the energetic pen and watercolor illustrations. The page designs are attractive, and range from large double-page spreads to small, framed vignettes showing the sequence of construction efforts. And the vehicles themselves, with their odd assortments of wheels, cogs, and gears are ingenious and will fascinate those interested in machinery. The jacket advertises ``Free construction kit inside,'' and includes paper airplane parts printed on the flaps. Emphasizing the droll rather than the didactic, No Problem is an additional purchase. --Linda Wicher, Highland Park Public Library, IL
