This delightfully sweet storybook follows a duo of harvest mice as they explore the countryside. A unique mouse-eye view shows creatures in their natural habitats as the two meet a quiet rabbit, get a peek in an energetic sparrow’s nest, and make an amphibious acquaintance near the river. Exploring is tiring, but at the end of the day there is a cozy, warm nest to crawl back into, and the two mice dream of what nature will bring tomorrow. This title features twelve beautifully drawn animals to discover as Baker’s award-winning illustrations put fascinating creatures like badgers, ducks, and squirrels at your fingertips.
First published in 1990, this captivating story is a celebration of the value and irreplaceable beauty of nature, but it doesn’t end there! This revised edition of Two Tiny Mice includes descriptions of all the animals illustrated, so kids can learn about the wildlife right outside their door. A classic book back in print, Two Tiny Mice will nurture curiosity and a lasting respect for the outdoors.

Gr 5 Up-Once again, Jacques has created a wonderfully imaginative and beautifully realized universe, filled to the brim with amazing and amusing characters. Triss the squirrelmaid (spiritual heiress to Martin the Warrior) escapes slavery, chased by the evil princess Kurda and her band of hired Freebooters. At the same time, two young rips named Scarum and Sagax head off to sea with their friend Kroova the otter, looking for adventure (and finding rather more than they bargain for). Meanwhile, there is something very scary lurking in the woods around Redwall Abbey. Almost every character speaks in elaborate dialect and there are several independent stories that converge at the end, requiring readers' concentration. There are also a few fairly graphic (though not gratuitous) scenes of violence. While this 15th book in the series is perhaps not the best place to start, even readers unfamiliar with the earlier titles will never feel lost, for there are plenty of references to earlier books.-Mara Alpert, Los Angeles Public Library Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
