Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What new surprise will Little Bitty Mousie find around the next corner?

While a family sleeps, Mousie scampers through the house one night. She sniffs around, wiggling her nose at all she sees from A through Z. After a bite of an apple, a taste of some butter, and a nibble on a carrot, Mousies just begun to explore. The night is young, and theres still much more to discover!

 

Jim Aylesworths rhythmic language and Michael Hagues intricate illustrations will lead readers on a delightful midnight adventure with a charmingly curious little mouse.

Review:

"It's nighttime, the coast is clear — the perfect opportunity for Little Bitty Mousie to explore, in alphabetical order, all the delights of a human household: 'She climbed the dirty Dishes/ That at dinner held some stew./ She sniffed into an Eggshell,/ But she found it hard to chew.' Every four letters, Aylesworth (Old Black Fly) offers up a catchy refrain tailor-made to elicit audience participation: 'Tip-tip tippy tippy/ Went her little mousie toes./ Sniff-sniff sniffy sniffy/ Went her little mousie nose.' Hague's (The Tale of Peter Rabbit) digitized drawings combine a traditional storybook aesthetic with the vividness of photorealism, and a tall format allows for large-scale renderings. Mousie, with her winsome rodent face and her ankle-length polka-dotted pinafore, would be very much at home in a vintage English picture book, while many of the things she tastes or scampers over have an almost palpably physical presence. Ages 3-6." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
