Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Quattlebaum
The endearing rodent is back in his fourth adventure, an excursion into the "icy, lacy, snow-flaky" world where he befriends three "quivery, shivery birds" and barely escapes the claws of the family tabby. Cox's rhythmic text, rife with wordplay and onomatopoeia, pairs wonderfully with Ebbeler's detail-rich artwork. Kids will get a kick out of funny particulars such as Mouse's leaf toboggan, a parakeet's sombrero and Mom's pink, fuzzy scuffs as well as the "cinnamon-spicy" monster cookies the boys bake and decorate with all manner of pretzel-stick antennae and marshmallow teeth. As for all the leftover crumbs, Mouse shares them with his feathered buddies. Reviewer: Mary Quattlebaum
School Library Journal
PreS-K—It's a snowy, blowy day outside, but Mouse is safe and sound in the house. Unfortunately, a pesky cat keeps stalking him, and pretty soon he is swept outside along with the feline. Outside are three hilarious birds who are trying to go south. Their bags are packed and they have festive, warm-weather clothes on. They watch Mouse explore the snow and cheer him on in his quest to avoid the cat, like a flying peanut gallery. And when Mouse finally makes it back inside, he remembers his shivering friends and does something kind. This fourth story about Mouse perfectly sums up the euphoria of fresh-fallen snow. Cox's text rhymes throughout, and reads aloud well: "Mouse scampered between their feet, undetected, unsuspected." The author also combines descriptive words in a new and fresh way, such as snow being likened to "mounds of mashed potatoes." Ebbeler's illustrations expand on the text, with details everywhere to pore over, including a superhero snowman and a puffy, fluffy bedroom slipper. Mouse himself is a delight, with his thick glasses and striped pullover. While this book will be enjoyed in more northern states, it will be just as much fun to pull it out in the desert heat.—Susan E. Murray, formerly at Glendale Public Library, AZ
