Editorial Reviews

Calgary Herald
This wonderfully imaginative story is vividly illustrated with colourful three-dimensional images of Fimo modeling clay. The story and illustrations will capture and stir the imaginations of young readers.
Children's Literature
Little Mouse does not want to take a nap despite her obvious exhaustion. Mommy Mouse tries her best to settle her baby down for a rest with song and story, but her stubborn child refuses to surrender to slumber. Mommy Mouse finally gives up trying and leaves Little Mouse to fall asleep all by herself. Little Mouse falls asleep and dreams an adventure full of sea-creature friends and fun. This story, written and illustrated twenty years ago by Eugenie Fernandes, is being published with new illustrations created by her daughter, Kim. The three-dimensional Fimo( illustrations are captivating and are the true sensation of this book. Little Mouse resides in a coffee pot home, sleeps in a tennis shoe bed, rides on the back of a sea horse, and returns to her bedroom in a soup bowl and spoon sailboat. Each page is a magical demonstration of creativity and imagination by the illustrator. The book will inspire any young artist about to embark upon a lesson of clay and sculpture. 2000, Kids Can Press,

The Claymation-like illustrations ... are truly fantastic.
Quill and Quire
Based on a family story that Eugenie Fernandes told her own children, this revised version of the story has striking new illustrations. Kim Fernandes has not only mirrored the playfulness of Eugenie’s spare, simple text but her buoyant Fimo illustrations create a sprightly sense of movement that truly makes the text come alive. The pictures also share the text’s sense of humour – the mice live in a pale pink coffee pot and the little mouse’s room includes a framed postage stamp, potted plant, and bright yellow bed made from a running shoe. This is a welcome addition to the literature for toddlers and preschoolers. Like other engaging books for the very young, ... Sleepy Little Mouse is certain to become a bedtime favourite.
