Overview

Mouse is curious about life outside his quiet home in the hold of the sailing ship, and so he sets off to do some exploring. Ignoring the warnings of his mother, he looks for adventure on the ship's deck and falls overboard. Eventually he is washed ashore and finds himself in the jungle. Luckily, the animals he meets do their best to help him out . . . even Lion, the fiercest of them all. But how can tiny Mouse return the favor of the great King of the Jungle? Mouse's jungle adventures are cleverly foreshadowed by a die-cut hole in each page, and the illustrations bear up to long and pleasant scrutiny. Children are sure to return to this charmingly inventive book again and again.

In this adaptation of a familiar fable, an adventursome mouse proves that even small creatures are capable of great deeds when he rescues the King of the Jungle.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carolyn Mott Ford
This is a wonderfully illustrated version of the story about a mouse and a lion becoming friends and it also brings new meaning to the phrase, "One good deed deserves another." The peephole pictures give an added dimension sure to please young readers.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3--Jones has expanded an Aesop's fable into an adventure. Mouse's first foray out of the hold of the sailing ship where he lives with his family leads to a disastrous encounter with a cat and a plunge into the sea. Washed up on an island, he escapes from one dangerous animal after another until he is captured by Lion, who admires his courage and lets him go. A few hours later, Mouse hears Lion's cry of distress and rescues him from a hunter's net. Lion then arranges for Mouse to return to his family. The augmented tale moves quickly enough to keep children's interest but lacks the focused simplicity and dignity that makes the traditional version so appealing. Each two-page spread has a full-page of illustration faced by one of text. The middle of the text page contains a round hole that first gives a peek at an element in the next picture and, when the page is turned, looks back at part of the preceding painting. The devise is adequate, but it is sometimes difficult to determine just what is being shown through the peep hole. The colors in the pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations have such a similarity of tone and are so busy with details and crosshatching that the figures are frequently overpowered by the backgrounds. All in all, this retelling adds nothing new to a familiar fable.--Karen James, Louisville Free Public Library, KY
