Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
George, a mouse, brings news of a nearby fox when he visits his friend Emily and her newborn goslings. His description of the lurking animal--``big ears, bright eyes and sleek, shiny fur''--causes Emily's neighbor Lulu to insist that George himself must be the fox, as he fits that description. Lulu presses her point even after the fox appears; but during their discussion, George binds the predator's tail with a vine and so saves the day. Though Walsh's format is keyed to a very young audience--minimal text, bold and uncomplicated artwork--her plot is apt to confuse, for transitions are abrupt and readers are left to make several connections on their own. And while any single image is appealing, the illustrations as a whole become monotonous, with little variation in perspectives, composition or expression--nor are they used to advance the story as fully as they might be. A flat and muddled effort, especially disappointing in light of Walsh's ( Mouse Paint ) enchanting previous work. Ages 3-8. (Sept.)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-- George the mouse is the first to welcome Emily's new goslings, but he comes with the warning that he has seen a fox. Lulu the goose hears about the fox (`` ` . . . big ears, bright eyes, and sleek, shiny fur . . . ' '')--and since George matches that description, flips him into the pond. Lulu is still squawking when she comes face to face with the real fox; he nearly pounces on her, but is restrained by George, who has wrapped the predator's tail to a large growing vine. Once again, Walsh takes her simple forms found in Mouse Paint (HBJ, 1989) and brings in other large, colorful animals for an effective story with little more than dialogue for text. Much of the plot is conveyed by the illustrations, where readers see just how ridiculous Lulu's assumptions are. It is sure to find wide acceptance as a story-hour favorite. --Nancy A. Gifford, Schenectady County Public Library, NY
