Who doesn't think this is the cutest book ever? That's what I thought. This is the first book I bought for my granddaughter when we started reading her bed time stories. I love the illustrations, colorful and well drawn but not real busy (like Richard Scarry books where there is too much going on) and not too many words on a page. It's a fun read, as kids books should be, without all the didacticism found in some children's stories.

My granddaughter is now 14 months old. I don't care what story I read to her, I have to read this one too EVERY night or she thinks it's not bedtime. It's the last page you see, the one that says, "The End." It has the mouse in his hammock, going to sleep. She has to say night, night (rather ni ni) to the mousey, and then I say good night to her, and she rolls over and goes to sleep. Cute. ( )

This book was a great story about how a mouse can save a strawberry he found from getting eaten by a big hungry bear. The reader tells him that the only way he can say it is by sharing it with the reader and they end up being able to save the strawberry from the bear. The point of view of the story was from the reader who was actually interacting with the mouse which I thought was really new and interesting. The first page you read "Hello, little mouse. What are you doing?" and you know from there that whoever is reading the book is actually talking to the mouse which I loved. The illustrations in this book were also amazing. The redness of the strawberry and the actual drawing of the mouse and his home was amazing and really added so much to the story. Also, because it did not have a great deal of text, the illustrations where the main indicator of what was happening in the story and I thought they conveyed the funny and light hearted tone that this book had. I thought that this book was truly amazing with the illustrations and the funny lighthearted message that the reader actually got to get involved in and become a character themselves. ( )

This is a cute read for younger kids. They will enjoy finding ways for the mouse to escape from the big hungry bear. ( )
