Reviews

 

"My children adored finding all kinds of tiny surprises in the intricate scenes, like the wall clock made from an antique watch face or the front porch step created out of a decorative mints container."

"Different from the illustrated or computer generated illustration as the book is illustrated with still life pictures. Very, very cute."

"The story, told concisely and satisfyingly in rhyme, is one that children can relate to: Mouse has built a house and a second mouse, Musetta, takes his piece of cheese. This act provokes a chain of events that's exactly right for small children: a bumblebee stings the wrongdoer, who is appropriately upset, and Woolly Bear caterpillar helps out. There is a final plot twist that is just right for adults and kids alike."
