There once was a mouse called Noah with green eyes. He lived in a hole almost all the time. One day as he was thinking about going out, he saw a blue eye staring at him from outside his hole. At the same time all of this was happening, a mouse called Raffaella was passing by, and thinking she would like to explore a little, looked into the hole and saw a green eye. Noah had never seen a blue eye before and he imagined it belonged to a dragon, or something even worse. Raffaella had never seen a green eye before ...

Overview

There once was a mouse called Noah with green eyes. He lived in a hole almost all the time. One day as he was thinking about going out, he saw a blue eye staring at him from outside his hole. At the same time all of this was happening, a mouse called Raffaella was passing by, and thinking she would like to explore a little, looked into the hole and saw a green eye. Noah had never seen a blue eye before and he imagined it belonged to a dragon, or something even worse. Raffaella had never seen a green eye before and she imagined it belonged to a murderer, or a traffic warden. Noah then thought that the blue eye belonged to a snake. Then Raffaella thought it was a cat's green eye that she saw. 'Who are you?' 'Who are you?' 'I'll tell you if you'll tell me first'. 'Why should I tell you first?' By using a creative layout with a real hole in each page, the reader enters the imaginative minds of two little mice and thinks of what kind of animal the other could be until the very end when, on the count of three, Noah comes out of his hole. This is a cleverly and beautifully designed book by world renowned and acclaimed graphic designer and teacher, Bob Gill. This book playfully stimulates a child's imagination.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this squat, spare picture book about two mice learning to trust each other, which Gill (What Colour Is Your World?) created in the 1960s but is only being widely published now, Noah (the green-eyed mouse) and Rafaella (the blue-eyed mouse) spy each other--well, each other's eyes--through a die-cut hole in the pages. Gill builds suspense through the mice's exchanges ("Who are you?" "Who are you?" "I'll tell you if you'll tell me first." "Why should I tell you first?") as each supposes the other to be various threats. "Rafaella had never seen a green eye before and she imagined it belonged to a child catcher, or a traffic warden." Arch asides provide more laughs: "Finally Rafaella realized that unless she did something soon, this book would not have a happy ending." Gill's b&w line drawings are reminiscent of Thurber drawings, and the dashed-off look may not have wide appeal. This reductive approach, though, keeps the focus on the mice's fears and their need to make a leap of faith, making them all the easier to identify with. Ages 3–6. (Nov.)
