Overview

In a series of delightfully imaginary achievements, "nobody's mouse" transforms himself into the beloved hero of his mother, father, sister, and brand-new baby brother. In their very first collaboration, now celebrating its 30th anniversary, Robert Kraus and Jose Aruego give charm and validity to one of childhood's more difficult experiences. Tender and catchy, Robert Kraus's rhyming text, combined with Jose Aruego's large, vibrantly clever illustrations, makes for a storytime classic. This happy picture book is brusting with wit, tenderness, and joyful ingenuity.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Kirkus Reviews The quintessential picture books can't be plotted out or put into any other words; ergo,"Whose mouse are you?/Nobody's mouse./Where is your mother?/Inside a cat./Where is your father?/Caught in a trap..." But that's all we'll tell you — the ending is too good to give away...

School Library Journal ...[O]ne of the simplest — and best — picture boks to come along in years...

The Horn Book ...[A] story-hour treat...

Booklist ...[A]n absolute charmer...
