Children's LiteratureWilf is a winsome little mouse with large enthusiasm. He loves to jump, climb, skip, bounce, whirl and do anything to excess. The only trouble is that he does not like to fall. When, oh when will Wilf listen to his mother when she tells him to be more careful? But when the sweet rodent prepares—carefully, for once—a surprise for his Mom, her enthusiasm gets the best of her and—CRASH, BANG, WALLOP!—maybe Wilf's tendency toward joyful clumsiness runs in the family? Fearnley's colorful soft illustrations are so charming that they more than carry the lightweight plot. This book would be a nice addition to story time for preschoolers who are still learning about body awareness or for a gentle reminder between parent and child about the importance of listening. 2004, Candlewick Press, Ages 3 to 5.
