Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
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

Mouse receives a large package labeled "Construction Kit" with an invitation from Rat reading, "Put together the things you see, / Then climb aboard and visit me." Too excited by the bountiful supply of wheels, wings, nuts, bolts, and thingamajigs to look for the directions, Mouse constructs a weird contraption she calls a Biker-Riker, but it doesn't go very fast or very well. Seeing Mouse's plight, her friends take turns putting the kit together: Badger makes a Jaloppy-Doppy, Otter invents a Boater-Roater, and finally, Shrew takes it all apart, reads the instructions, and builds an airplane, which flies them all to Rat's house for Mouse's birthday party. Ready-to-cut-out "Construction Kit" parts ("and" instructions) on the extended flyleaves of the jacket could easily be cut off if libraries so choose. Browne's way with rhythm, sounds, and repetition will engage children from the outset. Full of activity and detail, the lively line drawings, washed in watercolor, suit the text well. An imaginative, humorous tale with a moral that's easy to take because it's so lightly given.
