Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book

 

There's lots to do before Little Mouse is ready to go visit the barn. Will he master all the intricacies of getting dressed, from snaps and buttons to Velcro and tail holes? 

Eisner Award-winning cartoonist Jeff Smith and his determined Little Mouse reveal all the smallest pleasures of this daily task.

Review:

"Smith's (the Bone series) crisply drafted style smoothly fuses graphic novel and picture book. Excited about Mama's invitation to go to the barn ('If we're good, Mama will let us swim in the cow's water!'), Little Mouse hurries to get ready to join his family. Every step of the getting dressed routine is closely examined ('Underpants are easy to put on...' says Little Mouse, wriggling into a tiny pair of briefs. 'Just be sure to get your tail in the tail hole!'). He masters the technical problems of snaps and buttons, then discovers that in his excitement he's forgotten a vital fact: 'mice don't wear clothes!' his mother reminds him. He's so shocked that his clothing bursts off him like fireworks. When he's unclothed, Little Mouse huddles like a furry creature, and when he's clothed, he stands on his own two feet — a useful visual metaphor for the oscillating feelings of independence younger children experience. The hero is an arresting blend of cute and tough, and his evident glee and determination will bolster the confidence of those who do have to wear clothing. Ages 4 — up. (Sept.)"

About the Author

Jeff Smith was grew up in a small town in Ohio and he loved cartooning, but he never imagined all the places comics would take him. With the help of his wife, Vijaya, Jeff created, published, and sold his comic book BONE. Jeff hadn’t created BONE specifically for kids, but his fantastic tale of three cousins lost in a strange land appealed to all readers, including children, and it went on to sell millions of copies. BONE won multiple Eisner and Harvey Awards, and TIME called it one of the ten greatest graphic novels of all time. In 2008, Jeff’s work was the subject of a major museum exhibit at the Wexner Center Galleries in Columbus, Ohio. His other books include Shazam! The Monster Society of Evil and RASL. This is his first book created just for younger readers.
