Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Ernest and Celestine are back, and in this adventure Ernest seeks a museum position. The older bear will only take the job if his young mouse charge can come along each day. No, that isn't possible, he is told, so the two leave to look around the museum. Celestine fails to be intrigued by the paintings, even the Mona Lisa, who Ernest adoringly says smiles like her. When the tired mouse asks to go home, Ernest can't resist looking at a few more paintings. Quick as a flash, the two are lost from each other and frantic, but a guard helps them get back together. With soft watercolors, Vincent has created angles that make Celestine seem tiny in contrast to the great halls, a common position for youngsters. And Celestine's feelings when her caretaker momentarily sees to his own needs are beautifully and simply expressed, ``I thought you liked the pictures better than me.'' Ernest replies, ``There is nothing I like better than you, Celestine!'' (48)
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2 Returning for a triumphant encore to their previously acclaimed titles, the large, affable bear Ernest and the petite ingenue mouse Celestine again portray the warmth of the adult-child relationship while this time extending their milieu to include the realm of art. After interviewing for a position at the art gallery which would exclude Celestine, Ernest leads Celestine through a maze of astutely miniaturized Turners, Monets, da Vincis, etc., of which she finally tires. Straying, Celestine loses Ernest, and the pace of their search for each other becomes frantic until the devoted pair is reunited. Safely at home, Celestine finally expresses her fear that Ernest liked the artwork more than herself; but in his direct and loving way, Ernest reassures her that there is nothing he likes better than her, and she reciprocates. Sparked with vitality, yet tinged with mellow pastel lines, the artwork corresponds to the relationship between the sparkling Celestine and the gentle Ernest. Cathy Woodward, Lima City Schools, Ohio
