Three blind mice were very hungry and search out for food. Of course they were blind and couldn't see but as they searched and felt around for food it helped them a lot. This is a good traditional book to read to students they also have a song to sing at the very end of the page. ( )

Three mice go off on an adventure where they become blind and their tails are chopped off! Luckly they find someone who can fix them all up. Most peole have heard of the song of these mice before, but not many know the whole story. The great thing about this book is that they have the song and melody on the back of the book to teach the audience the song. ( )

From Publishers Weekly
Galdone's last work is an expected delight. His mice are three-as-one, identifiable only by the colors of their mufflers and clearly small in contrast to the vast open spaces around them and the oversize people nearby. In the course of this longer version of the familiar rhyme, they go from bold to scared, grow hungry, sad and sick. A narrow escape from a cat sends them into the bramble hedge that scratches their eyes and makes them blind. Then their tails are cut off by the farmer's wife. Now, "they could not see and they had no end." But this story doesn't end unhappily, and readers will enjoy the lesser-known verses of the mice's adventure. The illustrator's daytime world is lit by a large orange sun disk and colored with a variety of flowers, insects and birds, where things good and bad can happen and where adventure, experience and learning are fully possible. Watercolors and ink lines are used adroitly to fashion into existence a remote but welcoming place in the imagination. Ages 5-8.
