Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This award-winning story by Laura Numeroff is just as much fun in Spanish as it is in English. One thing leads to another in this imaginative tale of doing someone a favor. A boy offers a mouse a cookie but then the mouse wants a glass of milk, then a straw and then a napkin. Next he must check in the mirror to see that he hasn't any milk on his mustache, which leads to a hair trim, and so on. Children may see themselves in this story, either as the demanding and sometimes helpful mouse, or as the child character who tries so hard to be a good host. The cartoon-like illustrations are bright and full of action. They closely follow the details of the text and children will enjoy pointing out familiar things. The cause and effect events of the story make a full circle and should result in calls to read it again. 1995 (orig. 1985), HarperCollins, $15.95. Ages 3 to 7. Reviewer: Marianne Mitchell
