Publisher Comments:

It's time for seven little mice to start school!   And it's up to Mother Mouse to get them there. When the little mice prove reluctant, Mother Mouse invents "the mouse train" — all aboard! 

          

Review:

"The action in this Japanese author/artist's English-language debut is low-key: three diminutive squirrels go sledding with their father, and Papa, initially reluctant, discovers that sledding keeps you warm in the cold. The rewards lie in Iwamura's exquisitely rendered winter landscapes, inked with whispering lines and colored with the palest of tints. He has a talent for imagining what the world looks like to small creatures. While the squirrels' pointy ears, fluffy tails and matching sweaters make them embraceably cute, the forest they live in is painted in noble proportions, with gigantic mist-covered tree trunks (only the lowest foot or two of which are shown, in accordance with the squirrel's-eye view), grasses weighed down under coats of snow and delicate branches outlined in white. No detail is overlooked; even the two eyelet screws that hold the rope to the sled are clearly drawn. The single interior scene, with its squirrel-sized Japanese teapot and teacup sitting by the woodstove, repays a long look, too. Ages 3 — up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Beautiful illustrations bring a winter wonderland to life as three little squirrels try to convince Daddy to come out and play! Three squirrel children are ecstatic that it has snowed, but have a hard time pulling their sled, and an even harder time convincing Papa to come out in the cold and help them. Papa starts out shivering, but soon he is as warm as toast and having as much fun as the children.
