My four year old chose this book at the bookstore. We read it frequently, months later. Her two year old sister also loves the story and frequently selects it to read. They love how little Henry doesn't like his knight costume and puts on real armor.

Thanks to the playful imagination of Katharine Holabird and endearingly quaint illustrations by Helen Craig a small mouse named Angelina has won the hearts of youngsters. Angelina, as many know is a small white mouse with a sweet disposition, a taste for adventure, and a high-spirited brown mouse cousin, Henry. In this, the author's 13th Angelina story, Angelina is thrilled by Miss Lily's invitation to go to the Royal Palace of Mouseland and teach the princesses a special dance in honor of Queen Seraphina and Kind Ferdinand's wedding anniversary. Henry, to Angelina's dismay, is allowed to accompany them. The palace is awesome, the guard's handsome. However, after an embarrassing faux pas at dinner, Angelina decides she isn't good enough to be there and determines to tell Miss Lily she must go home. However, fate steps in via a dreadful cold. When Miss Lily becomes ill it is up to Angelina to teach the princesses a dance. Much to Angelina's surprise the princesses turn out to be rather bad tempered, fighting over who will get to be the magic fairy. Youngsters will be pleased with Angelina's solution to this problem, and perhaps learn a thing or two about pouring oil on troubled waters. Delightful story for ages three and up. - Gail Cooke
